Sr. Agnes Remembered and Celebrated
 
      On Saturday morning, June 1st members of our community participated in the funeral Mass for a dear friend from the Dominican Sisters of Mount Thabor in Ortonville.  The Liturgy was our way of thanking the Lord for the life of Sister Agnes of the Eucharist, O.P., and showing support to her community, family and friends.  Sr. Agnesí love for our Blessed Lord was reflected in her love for the community she was vowed to for almost 19 years.  Her simplicity of heart, gentleness, generosity and creativity will be greatly missed.  The main celebrant of the Mass was a close friend and fellow Dominican, Fr. Michael Monshau who traveled to Ortonville for the occasion.  Remembrances were offered by members of the community and her family.  Before the procession to the burial site, a beautiful poem which seemed fitting for the occasion written by Sr. Agnes was read.
