Spring Equinox

It was unseasonably mild and sunny on March 20, 2012, the first official day of spring. 

Close to 30 Sisters, Associates, staff and friends gathered in the Heirloom Seed Sanctuary Barn to celebrate the spring equinox, when length of day and night are equal.
Seed savers Cate Henderson and Sister of Providence Shirley Morris led the group in song, prayer and reflection. Guests held a small soybean seed in the palm of their hands as a reminder that our life cycle is similar to the life cycle of the seed.
