Week 15: 28 Dec-3 Jan 2021

Ireland now started experiencing really cold and wintry conditions. We had light snow too on one of the days here in Dublin. 

We watched a few movies during this period – ‘The English Patient’ was one of them.

On New Year’s eve we had haustus that went on way into the night. We sang for a long time and also said a little prayer together at midnight thanking God for the year gone by, and asking for God’s blessings on the year ahead.  

A strict new lockdown (level 5) got imposed here in Ireland once again as covid cases kept rising. The covid vaccine is in sight though. We’re all hoping and praying for the best. 

On 3rd night Michele cooked Lasagna for the community. This turned out really well, so much so that the chef himself was impressed and surprised to see how well it turned out. 

We have also received news of Dublin now having a new Archbishop – Dermot Farrell
