A Farewell

By the time this edition of  JUST Words is off the press, it is anticipated that the Nuns of the Monastery of Mary the Queen will have vacated Siena Hall, their residence for the past eight years, and moved to their new monastery in Girard, Ill. In an interview Sister Ann Marie Pierre gave to Catholic Times, she spoke of the ties between our two branches of the Order of Preachers. “That bond that we created there with them, they have become such an  integral part of our lives.” It’s true, there will be a great hole in daily life once the nuns leave Sacred Heart Convent, but the ties that bind are not easily severed. The relationship will live on in ways yet to be realized.
