Open House

Saturday  June 13, 2009  Our Lady's Workshop  12 - 4 p.m.

Our Ladyís 39th Anniversary was a very successful and grace-filled weekend. About 125 pilgrims gathered for the Open House at Our Ladyís Workshop. They got a first-hand look of our sizeable operation when they toured the offices and pressroom. They also enjoyed good conversation, refreshments and our gardens.
