  • The Works of our Hands

    Intellectual work (writing thank you letters, office duties, paying bills) and manual work (washing dishes, cleaning, doing laundry) are the two hands that together help us to build our community and keep it running smoothly. Every sister is encouraged to develop skills for the work she has been assigned to do--perhaps  learning in the process that she has gifts she was completely unaware of!
