Our new websites will always be,
by the Hand of God,
a 'Work in Progress'.
As you can imagine, there are so many things throughout the day that need our attention. We organize ourselves into Spiritual, Business,
and Personal operations. Our 'specialized' departments include : Sachristy, Bursar, General Office and Insurance, Spiritual Cards,
Phone and 'Turn', Graphics, Altar Breads, Novitiate, Building and Grounds Maintenance, Kitchen, Shopping and Cooking, Transportation,
Medical, Library, and Technical Resources Management. Probably a bunch more, but who can keep track? Yes, they're all the
same types of things you deal with! However, we intensify: for us, our life of prayer is one of living a life while making our prayers
an integral part of our living.
We usually have a Sister assigned to each 'department' as primary responsible person.
Some of these positions are elected, some are assigned, and some are filled by volunteers as-needed, but all of us share in each
of the duties at one time or another.
One of our more important operations is our Altar Bread Department, which provides us with
a substantial portion of our income. (Thanks for your support!) Over the years we have learned to embrace technology and use it to
improve our efficiency and reduce our expenses. By carefully monitoring our work patterns, we are able adjust our activities, keeping
wasted efforts and resources to a minimum. This, in turn, allows us more time for our mainstay -- Prayer!
We hope, as time goes by, that we can offer different glympses of how our lives of work become prayer.
Today we shine the
spotlight on our Altar Bread Department.
