Catching Up on Christmas: Merry Priest Chalkboard!

A Handmaid News

We share another look at some of our Christmas decorations, especially around the Priest Chalkboard. The chalkboard on our refectory wall highlights the names of specific priests each week to pray for. You can read about the practice here. While wild turkey feathers are a common decoration, (we have several different rafters of wild turkeys moving through our grounds on a rotating basis) we try to deck not only the halls of our monastery at Christmas but our Priest Chalkboard too. This year, with some fervent prayers to Our Lady Undoer of Knots, we were able to hang some Christmas lights in this area.
