I’ve been working on documenting the nuns at the Visitation Monastery of Minneapolis, a project I hope to continue for some time. I’ve known them for something like 18 years, so it’s been fun to photograph them and their lives. They live in two houses in North Minneapolis, praying for their neighbors and the world, offering hospitality and love to the people who come to their door.  These photos are from the arts and crafts portion of their annual women’s retreat for neighbors and friends, held at Ascension Church.

I was at St. Jane House in North Minneapolis to help ponder future plans for the Visitation Monastery of Minneapolis, a group of amazing women I’ve known for many years.
