Hospital reopens gift shop
A public reception to celebrate the grand opening of The Bazaar at Bartlett will be held Monday from 4:30-6:00 p.m. The Bazaar is an expansion of the hospital's previous gift shop, and offers a wider selection of merchandise and increased hours. The Hospital Guild ran the store previously, and the reception particularly recognizes their past and present members.
Shrine hosts spirit talks
A short talk about St. Benedict, the beginning of the monastic lifestyle and life as a layperson observing the Benedictine rule of life will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the chapel at the Shrine of St. Therese. Another speaker will briefly address Carmelite spirituality.
