Back to School

Back to School

Wednesday, September 14th, St. Andrew’s Academy started up again. I worked hard all summer–when I wasn’t in England, that is–to get things caught up and ready at the office, and I mostly succeeded. Only a few projects I didn’t get to. I’m plan to post regularly now and keep you all up to date on… Read More ›

ENGLAND TRIP PART ONE

ENGLAND TRIP PART ONE

“Well, I’m back,” to quote Sam Gamgee from the last sentence of the Lord of the Rings. Now, I shall be writing a whole series of newsletters about my trip. Because it will take me a great while to write out all that we saw and did in England, I will insert posts about my current doings… Read More ›

GETTING INTO THE HABIT

GETTING INTO THE HABIT

May 22nd, Trinity Sunday, I took my vows and became a nun for a year. My life isn’t really any different now than it has been since I arrived here at St. Andrew’s. The difference is now I’m “bonified!” Now, I’ve committed to this life for a year and I have vowed to “stability of… Read More ›

ENGLAND OR BUST

ENGLAND OR BUST

This June, we are packing our bags and heading to England for two weeks of learning and singing.

HOLY WEEK

HOLY WEEK

At St. Andrew’s, Holy Week is a very busy time. Besides our usual morning chapel prayer service, we have an evening mass every night. That means a total of 13 services in a week. That is a lot of church! But what better way to spend my time than in worshiping God? I was tired, but… Read More ›

SAN FRANCISCO TRIP PART THREE

SAN FRANCISCO TRIP PART THREE

Monday, March 14th, was actually partly sunny, and we had breakfast before we packed up our camp and headed to the city for our final adventure. It was Pi day, you know March 14th or 3.14 for all the math nerds out there, which meant there was free admission at the Exploratorium. We got dropped… Read More ›

SAN FRANCISCO TRIP, PART TWO

SAN FRANCISCO TRIP, PART TWO

The next day, we headed to the Golden Gate Bridge and the wind was almost strong enough to hold me up when I leaned into it. I loved it and didn’t want to wear a jacket. I felt wild and free. We toured the Presidio and stopped at a couple of museums there before heading to Grace… Read More ›

SAN FRANCISCO TRIP, PART ONE

SAN FRANCISCO TRIP, PART ONE

March 10th to 14th I headed down to the Bay Area and back with St. Andrew’s School. We visited Chico, San Francisco, Los Altos, and Orinda. It was a truly delightful trip and just what I needed after a somewhat hectic month of sudden change and lots of adjustments. The weather was pretty bad, but… Read More ›

First Sunday Singing in Choir So, I’m official now! I’ve got my cassock and my surplice and I’m singing alto. This Sunday we sang one hymn to the same Bach tune as Sacred Head Now Wounded which is from St. Matthew’s passion and Tallis’s If You Love Me. Such beautiful music! We have choir class… Read More ›
