Convent time

Today I went to St John's Convent in Toronto for the Sisterhood of St John the Divine's foundation day, the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Bishop Ann Tottenham, of whom I am rather fond, was the celebrant and homilist. Unfortunately, attendance was rather poor for such a festal day.

The sisters were very friendly and welcoming, but they can never quite hide their bemusement that a male university student would care to visit them.
