At the end of March we welcomed Fr. Michael O'Connor, OP to our community for an intensive three days of liturgical singing and teaching. We were so blessed and genuinely delighted to have Fr. Michael with us, sharing his great gift and love of music. Not only did we have time together as "choir", but also individually to work on our singing and our organ playing.

Needless to say, the change has been nothing short of remarkable! Granted, we still have a long way to go, but there's light at the end of the tunnel! -- so much so that one Sister even exclaimed, "I can't wait to go to prayer now!"

It was a little bit like this:

So, we shall see where the Lord takes us with perseverance and practice, praising and worshiping the Lord in the beauty of holiness! Thank you, Fr. Michael, for all your help, teaching, and encouragement!

Aaaand... here's a beautiful photo from a brief outing to Winchester Cathedral the day before Fr. Michael returned to Rome.
