“Making All Things New!”
We believe we are one with all peoples, cultures and creation in the ancient longing to find and to live in peace.

Some members of a SBU class,20 first year young women and men, up for their 1st visit- found their way to our porch with their supper.

Alumns In from Texas, women from Rochester on retreat- all of us enjoying vegetables from our still-producing garden. Soon after clean up we all made our way to our Chapel for Mass. Songs for prayer; “All are welcome” and “Journeys ended journeys be gone, to go where we have never been to be beyond our past,,” are in me as I remember the Love and Fun of last night’s Meal and Holy Table~ Something New is beginning! See Hope on these BONNIE faces! Peace! Dan ofm #stbonas #thebonnies #gobonnies #stbonaventureuniversity #stbonaventure #stbonas #newchurch #newday #wewill #christ #allarewelcome
