Golden Jubilee of Ordination!

Fr. Dick and Mother Rebecca
One of our chaplains, Fr. Dick Ament celebrates his 50th year of Ordination this year.  Since we couldn't join him at the official celebration at St. Lawrence in Otter Creek, Iowa we decided to have a celebration of our own.  After Mass last Thursday we had a special brunch and visited with Fr. Dick.  He shared with us on his past ministries and about the celebration last Sunday at St. Lawrence.  At present Fr. Dick is an active retiree helping out at various churches in the area and our community a few day a week.  Congratulations Fr. Dick!

Return of the chickens

We have a new batch of chickens!  There are brown ones, black ones, white ones and yellow.  Presently they are living in the farm manager's office.  They are very small and have to live with a constant temperature until they are bigger and can move into the goat barn.  They grow pretty quickly so we are looking forward to eating there eggs soon!
