I arrived at La Mission de St Terese with little Idea what to expect and even less French.  I needn’t have worried, the community of locals and volunteers from all round the world, priest and seminarians and oblates, are very welcoming. The structure of the day beginning with Mass before breakfast and ending with night prayer and the Grand Silence, allows a freedom within these boundaries. The school keeps everyone busy, but the experience of Catholics living in community, comes first. The business never seems to dominate or drive out the peace and joy. I helped the nurses in the medical clinic and sang in the choir, swam in the river and helped in the kitchen. I will return soon, God willing.
