The Christmas season wouldn't have been complete without the monks annual visit to their Trappistine sisters at Wrentham. After beginning their day by joining together for the celebration of Mass, the communities sat down to enjoy an atmosphere of fine food and conversation. Later on came the warm and always fun-filled exchanging of gifts between the Abbot and Abbess, afternoon prayer, and a chance to taste samples of Wrentham's own best-selling chocolate. Perhaps the gift that was most enjoyed this year came when a small group of talented nuns put on an original theatrical show for all to watch. Presented in four parts, the performance portrayed the life, death, and resurrection of the Apostle Paul through dance in a most creative way.
