Fr. Gerard Kirsch of St. Martin’s Abbey, Lacey, was the chaplain for St. Placid Priory for more than 40 years. He was faithful, kind and generous. He had a prodigious memory for names and dates, including pertinent details about various members of St. Placid who had passed on years ago. Fr. G, as he was affectionately known by us and many others, was energetic as well as compassionate and prayerful. We will miss him greatly.
At this same ritual, Laura Tenisci became an Oblate candidate. Laura will journey with her Sister mentor, Sister Sharon McDonald, and her Oblate mentor, Roy DeLeon, through the coming year.
The Priory Fiber Arts booth will be loaded with irresistible gifts, all handmade or hand painted. Many other handcraft and art booths will also be featured at this huge event. Come early (early-bird entry is $5 from 8:15-9:00am), stuff goes fast!

Recently one of our members spent some time outside with a camera, capturing the Fall beauty on the grounds of St. Placid. We hope you enjoy the gorgeous colors of the changing season.
