Thank you Vince and Joe!

by S. Mary Frances Reis, VHM

Twice a year, Vince Woldock along with a fellow worker, delivers a cord of wood for our fireplace.  This came about because our friend, Joe Neumier, (who is himself an avid reader) saw a human interest piece about our monastery on channel 5.  It featured  “Reading Day by the fireplace.”  He was so impressed to see neighborhood kids from North Minneapolis enjoying the warmth of the fire and reading books that he started a tradition that has lasted some 20 years.

Our ministry of prayer, presence and hospitality is enhanced each day as we welcome women, men and children to our monastery.  Joe’s hidden ministry has been appreciated by us and our friends through the years.  Thank you, Joe!  May you be blessed by this kind, kind act.   You and Vince are in our prayers all winter long!
