Life of the communities

Let us take a peep into St Joseph’s House to meet the little group that is trying to invent marvels!

It all started with a project: "Let us make a crib" with the figures and decor. Our talents were put into practise! There was a rich sharing of ideas and our crib was much admired.

Today, the workshop continues with other ideas: we have been making cards using a needle for the designs and each one gives free rein to her creative talents.....people are free to come if they want.

We also prepared a Christmas Vigil miming a lovely story called "the Tunic". It was the story of a little boy who saw the Magi arriving in his village. They stopped there before going on their way to Bethlehem. The boy wanted to go with them! His mother refused.

One of the kings arranged to meet him the following day and his mother finally agreed. She took out of a trunk a beautiful tunic woven with coloured threads. She explained that she had made it for him, each colour having its own story. So the little boy set off happily with the caravan and offered his tunic to the Child Jesus who held it tightly in his little arms.

The little group of 5 sisters increased to 12 for the recreation organised for the middle of Lent.

The leisure period opened with a farandole and a medley we all sang together. This was followed by 2 little mimes of a conversation between St Peter and l'Abbé Pierre.

"The little stagecoach" prepared to leave. Here are the passengers: an elderly lawyer, a priest with his breviary, a young girl, an elegant gentleman and all the others.

Another canon was sung: "Papa, Mama, my child has only one eye...." The faces were lit up. Many happy memories were shared as the performers changed their costumes to sing "the Bear", very easy to mime. It was very successful! The big bear seeing he was getting a lot of applause continued his performance.

This break during Lent ended with delicious pancakes accompanied by jam and cider!!!

Before we separated, one of the sisters asked for another canon to bring the afternoon to a close. When will we have the next community recreation??!
