  1. What a wonderful newsletter!
    I read with interest about the current novitiate in Chicago and prayed for its success. I absolutely loved the rowing video on the Connecticut river near Holyoke, MA
    I am surprised now, that we in Albany haven’t done something similar on the Hudson and the Mohawk rivers which join here at Cohoes and Waterford. Costs are likely prohibitive but What great exercises in community building and working together, to say nothing of improving rowers’ health! I am going to see their website momentraily.

    Thanks for this, and may your Thanksgiving feast others in need!
