Summer Bounty Festival Brings Central Pennsylvania Community Together

Despite early August drought conditions and many prayers for rain for our garden and especially local farmers, we were not hoping for rain on the day of our festival. Sr. Water was very generous, however, and we were forced inside the garage at St. Bernardine's Monastery. Yet spirits were bright as the music, food and particularly the wonderful crowd of friends, old and new, joined us friars and our gardeners to celebrate the gifts of our land and God's abundance for all.
