Happy 60th Wedding Anniversary

This is my mother and father, Richard and Dorthy Bauer.  Today, July 1, 2010 they celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary with a mass with our community.  Following the mass we all had breakfast with the Sisters.

I feel very blessed to have both of my parents and to be able to celebrate with them this wonderful milestone.  They have always been a terrific example of what love and long term commitment are all about.  I thank God for giving me such a wonderful gift.

I love you both...too bad they don't have a computer...but I think they know how much they are loved and appreciated.

Our New Federation President

During the Federation Chapter Meeting in Atchison, Kansas....Sr. Glenna Smith from Bristow, Virginia was elected to be our President for the next four years.  She follows Sr. Esther Fangman who lead our Federation for the past 12 years. 

Let us all pray for both of these wonderful, faith filled Benedictine women who are tremendous examples of all that we value.  May God continue to bless both of them as they embark on new and promising futures.
