New Video Posting

 Recently Iowa Public Television did a piece on us and our candy business.  It is the 8th episode of a show they are doing called Greetings from Iowa.  It is very nicely done

Our Candy season is in full
 swing.  Production is going very well and candy orders are coming in for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  This year we have added a somewhat new product 'salted caramels'.  They are really delicious.

A Visit with Archbishop Jackels

This past Sunday we had the pleasure of welcoming our archbishop, Michael Jackels for Mass and a brunch afterwards.  We look forward to his yearly visit, but it is not unusual to see him at Monday evening Mass or Compline.
His homily was focused on prayer and gratitude as being one.  A prayer of petition should immediately be followed by a thank you because we know our prayer will be answered by our loving God, though maybe not in the way we first imagined.
After Mass we went to our refectory for brunch.  Our postulant Macerena is a very good cook so we shared her talent with the archbishop, serving egg and cheese burritos and  black beans.  He seemed to enjoy it!
