Catonsville--All Saints Convent

Today we had a leisurely drive from Montross VA to Catonsville MD. You would never have known that there was Washington DC on our left and Baltimore MD on our right. The traffic was good. We got in about 3 pm and made it to the Convent in time for Vespers at 5pm. At 6:30 we met Sister Julia Mary for about an hour and had a wonderful visit. The Convent is the most inspirational, meditative, full of God place I have ever visited. The chapel is beautiful with a huge rock altar and a wonderful rood screen.

Tomorrow at 1pm we will go back and visit until 4:30pm when the Sisters begin their week of silent retreat there at the Convent. We are hoping to take a lot of photos and to create a more useful, modern website for the Sisters.

For those of you who do not know, the Sisters have a Scriptorium with lovely greeting and holy cards. They can be ordered. Click on the link above, and you will find the phone number to order a cataloge.

More photos tomorrow including one of us with Sister. Also Raf wants to find Appalacian Blue Grass Shoppe in Catonsville.
