On Saturday, July 14, Point Nun Sister Eunice X was joined at The Convent by Sisters Gloria LeLuia and Teresa Glass for communal facing. We were soon thereafter joined by Sister Sandra Musique and potential initiate Jersey for the trek to Davis Square in Somerville, MA. There we connected with our host Yorgos and our very own photo-documentarian Saint Mega Pixel.
The organizers had set aside a lovely, shady spot very central to the festivities and provided a table and chairs. We put up our banner and began introducing ourselves to the onlookers passing by. There were so many people who had neither seen nor heard of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, and so we spent most of the day simply telling our story. In addition, we did a touch of fantasy face painting for the little ones – who very much enjoyed the attention. Overall, people seemed very pleased to meet us and learn about the Order, and we are grateful to live in a part of the country where that is true!
We give a special shout out to Big Gay Ice Cream Company (https://biggayicecream.com/) for making a tasty stand for embracing diversity through delicious treats generously offered for free to all ArtBeat patrons.
After the event we Sisters retired to The Convent for defacing, a little nosh, and a fond farewell. And there was much rejoicing!
