We incorporated our attractions for Pumpkin Daze into the native landscapes. Take a look at the trees, flowers and grasses. Can you identify which plants grow naturally, without being planted?

"Go and take the lowest place." (Luke 14:8) Benedictine Reflection: 22nd Sunday of the Year (9/1/19) Let's pray for the humility to see ourselves as God sees us and once again be overwhelmed by the fact that the poor, feeble and lame are not only those we are called to welcome, they are us.
