• fence volunteers
    A garden fence was an urgent need for the sisters' garden. Six generous volunteers from our brother community, the Canons Regular of Jesus the Lord, and our parish, Most Holy Mother of God Catholic Church, Vladivostok, Russia, came to help put up the fence. Sister Maria Stella and Sister Faustina welcomed them.
