Blog Break

I'm going to be away from the computer for the next week or so.

First up is a weekend trip to visit our Sisters in Scotland!

Then on Monday I'm headed to an intercongregational course for novices. The course is being held at a retreat center that in its earlier days as a palace played host to Katharine of Aragon.
Probably the most important Royal visitor to Buckden Palace was Katherine of Aragon. She was sent there by order of Henry VIII after the annulment of their marriage by Archbishop Cranmer. She resided in the Palace from July 1533 until 1534, occupying a room from where she had a direct view into the chapel.
I'm looking forward to meeting other novices here in the UK, but the historial connection also holds some interest for me as well!

I probably won't be back here until next Saturday.

Peace Out,
Susan
