“We have been witnesses at the monastery of love for needy folks for a number of years now. Our dear friend, Brent Heyer, has requested the use of our Guild Room for several days to gather food with other like-minded individuals and to pack hundreds of baskets at Thanksgiving time for their unknown but needy friends … for Jesus’ needy brothers and sisters. God Bless all the generous participants!’ – Winter 2012 Echoes Newsletter from the OP Nuns, Monastery of the Blessed Sacrament
