On this eve of the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart, our community begins the celebration with Statio (procession of the sisters into Chapel) and chanted first Vespers of the Solemnity. During these days, we are also much more aware of the presence of the Sacred Heart throughout the monastery.
Above the entrance of our original convent building, a carved lintel piece was set above the main doorway..."The Convent of the Sacred Heart". In the middle of the lintel was this detail drawing that is also mirrored in a stained glass piece. We saved the lintel during our renovations and it still stands near the entrance of the monastery's new entrance.
