Regina Laudis

As some parishioners will remember, 16 months ago one of our parishioners, Jen McLarin, joined the cloistered Benedictine community at the Abbey of Regina Laudis in Bethlehem, CT. I had the pleasure and privilege to visit Jen on December 29 and 30 at the Abbey. To the left is a photo of yours truly with Jen, Mother Abbess David Serna and Mother Prioress Dolores Hart.

Jen is thriving as a postulant in the community of 37 nuns. Her days are filled with hard work which, for Jen, are presently being spent mainly in the kitchen, and with prayer. The nuns pray the Liturgy of the Hours throughout the day which are all chanted in Latin. For more information on the community go to: http://abbeyofreginalaudis.org

As you can see with the picture on the right, she has discovered the hidden talent of being able to attracted wild birds to eat out of her hand. St. Francis would be proud of this daughter of St. Benedict!
