OctoberFest: Novitiate Style!

Sister Helena - Wednesday, October 16, 2019

Our Sisters in Formation made the best of the remaining days in October by going apple and pumpkin picking at Greig's Farm in Red Hook, NY.  This was Sr. Katie's first outing since being received as Postulant in our Community and everyone had a blast! Joining our spirited group was Kate Mc Goldrick who was visiting from Ireland with our Vocation Director, Sr. Mary O'Donovan.


Once those beautiful pumpkins were picked and polished, the task of carving them was planned during our evening recreation. Armed with carving kits, flood lights, garbage bags, camera and upbeat music, the REAL fun of the harvest time began. And in Carmel, nothing gets wasted, as Sr. Katie will bake those pumpkin seeds for the picking! Sr. Sharon Rose is also not far away with those pumpkin pies in the making!
