Stand with nuns

A ll people of faith are invited to stand with the nuns of “Get on the Bus” as they begin their five days of prayer and discernment over their future. On Tuesday, Aug. 7, we will meet at Mission Plaza where it intersects with Monterey and Chorro streets in San Luis Obispo from 11:30 a.m. to 12:05 p.m.

We will be there to acknowledge, support, and encourage these nuns or religious women who took to heart the direction of the world’s Catholic bishops during Vatican II. They returned to their original desire to bring the teachings of Jesus to the world, and to use their gifts for people in the 20th and on into the 21st centuries.

These bright, giving women spent several years determining how they could best serve the people of God, regardless of where these people were. Hospitals, schools, universities, soup

kitchens, homes to house recovering women of the streets, death rows in prisons, and all of the alleys and byways that most other people would never venture into. We want to thank them for taking the pro-life position of Vatican II to heart and making every effort to bring life to those who, for whatever reason, live in despair, and also to be a “voice for the voiceless”.

Please come and celebrate with us the good that these religious women do. Please bring a homemade sign if you wish. We sincerely hope to see you there.

Great time in Cambria

Our family just returned from a wonderful weekend in the quaint town of Cambria. We stayed in a hotel on Moonstone Beach Drive and the climate was perfect!

We ate at some superb restaurants and enjoyed a great play ( “Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks”) at the Pewter Plough Playhouse. What a perfect venue for theater. The actors were great and they could really dance!! At intermission we were surprised by a very talented pianist performing in the lounge!

We also enjoyed a kitchen tour fundraiser on Saturday! The

kitchens and home views were amazing!! Thank you for a memorable getaway.
