St. Clare's Feast Day - August 11

Our Lady of the Pearl did not have a formal meeting in August because our meeting date fell on August 11th, St. Clare’s Feast Day. Rather than the usual meeting, members journeyed to the St. Clare Monastery in New Orleans for Mass and to celebrate with Sr. Fidelis her 75th year of religious life. We were also joined by MaryLou of Our Lady’s Little Portion in Columbia. After Mass and spending time with Sister in the lovely gardens of the monastery, the seven of us went to lunch together. It was a wonderful day with great fellowship and time spent with our Mother of Pearl, Sr. Fidelis.
