Blessing the perimeter, saying Hail Marys the whole way around
It was a very busy time on the farm, with visitors, volunteers, sheep shearing, and the highlight of the weekend - the blessing of the field. Parishioners from our parish, Our Lady of Victory in Harveys Lake, PA, came to see the farm. Volunteers from Allentown did some much needed work on the front patio, as well as take care of the bees. We had the first shearing of our ewes Fern and Ivy (you can see the video on our Facebook and Google+ pages!). The culmination of the weekend was the blessing of the field by our pastor at OLV, Father Daniel Toomey. Enjoy some holiday scenes from the farm in our Photo Gallery.
