Two Michaelines

I'm back from the annual meeting of my religious group, the "Order of St. Michael." We had a good time praying, doing liturgy, discussing interesting topics, and just being friends in one place together. Most of the time we only connect online, because we are a very modern type of religious order. We have both females and males, married or single, and a wide diversity of lifestyles and occupations. Our "habit" is a dark blue robe that we wear at meetings. You see two of them here, as I sketched them after a religious service, color added later in Photoshop. It was good to spend a weekend with friends in a park-like environment, a convent-run retreat house near Reading, Pennsylvania. Many thanks to the Sisters who hosted us.
