Fr. Michael Berry was our main celebrant at 5pm Mass this evening.
A lovely dinner followed at which Mother Marya, Prioress of the St. Louis Carmel, welcomed all the sisters to St. Louis and gave a brief but very lovely welcome. If I can locate a copy of her remarks I will share it here. The 21 sisters acting as facilitators met with Stephanie's Hauge for an orientation as to our work these next three days. 
At the end of this day, all the nuns have arrived and, after a flight delay in Newark, NJ, Fathers Saverio and Rafal joined Fr. Daniel this evening. So all the chickens are accounted for and resting up for our first talks tomorrow with Fr. Saverio.
