Saw this on aol news and thought it was interesting. Apparently no longer a Catholic community, though, given the dedication was done without clergy. The nuns did it themselves if the pictures on their website are any indication.

Bob.

That is true - there was a brief discussion of the community in a thread several months back, as I recollect.

Many years,

Neil
