From January to May the NOVA community was very busy. The 49th anniversary was celebrated with liturgy and meeting at Meg's home. The community was so happy to have Fr. Dan Madigan back with us. The Peace Committee held some educational gatherings after the liturgy; the children were excited to learn the Good Shepherd lesson; NOVA blessed Marie and Carmela off to Mexico to visit the Safe Kids project and the school in Oaxaca; Lent began and ended with Holy Week; NOVA celebrated the 50th anniversary of Fr Joe Kenna's ordination; and then off to Lacey Woods for the summer.
