The Grace of Work

Work is a grace, a positive element in the building of the Kingdom, an important factor of the spiritual life. The sisters stand in solidarity with all those who must labor to support life and provide for their families. One means of support for the sisters is the sale of crafts made by themselves. The people who visit the gift shop during the year are familiar with the ornaments, mostly scenes of local buildings from the Cathedral to Hansen's snoball stand. Here Sister Olivia is cutting some of the ornaments out of wood, using the scroll saw.
