Moving Into a Contemplative Stance at Nunapalooza

Blog Published: July 22, 2013

This is one of my favorite weeks of the whole year which I affectionately call Nunapalooza because all of the sisters and associates in my IHM Community come home to Monroe, Michigan, for Community Days and Jubilee. Community Days is the few days before Jubilee where we gather to pray, reflect, and be with one another. Together with Jubilee, it is like a total immersion into the very heart of the community and of our mission in God. What's so amazing about Community Days is it's like a snapshot of the contemplative stance we try to live day in and day out as Catholic sisters.

The convent was abuzz this weekend with celebrations of all sorts! And not just among my own nuns but it seems it was a nunapalooza for many congregations! My Facebook newsfeed was filled with photos and links and congrats to sisters celebrating their jubilees as well as to women professing vows, being received as novices, and entering as candidates and postulants!
