Sister Spotlight: Sister Pat

Sister Pat Nyquist, OSB has been enjoying a lovely summer in the garden where she started several tomato plants from seeds.

"It is amazing to me. It started with all these tiny, little seeds, and they grew into all this (she sweeps her arms wide at the half dozen tomato plants now standing taller than her). To think, from tiny seeds comes the Lord’s bounty. It’s beautiful.”

The Sisters have spent many hours canning and jarring various tomato products to get them through the winter. Many hands make light work in the monastery!
