Ora et Labora Days at Children of Mary
In the spring and summer, the Children of Mary usually have Ora et Labora Days (Pray and Work Days) at their rural Licking County complex in Newark, OH. Everyone is invited, young and old, individuals and families, to come spend some time praying and working with the Sisters.
November Ora et Labora
November 12th ORA ET LABORA at Newark Motherhouse.
The day will begin at 9:00 with Holy Mass (come early if you would like to join the sisters in adoration, which begins at 6:30) and will end will end with a holy hour at 3:00 pm. There is a lot of work to do on the 106 acres of land: clearing brush, working in the flower gardens and vegetable garden, cutting up fallen trees, carpentry work, painting, etc. There is plenty of inside work also - for those who can't do manual labor.
NOTE: The sisters ask that you bring CHAINSAWS if you have them, and battery-pack NAIL GUNS for work on the hermitages!
