  • Things that make us happy this week Vol. 2

    Hello readers! Here at the Catholic Herald, we’ve noticed that our collective physical isolation has led to a lot of creativity, often showcased online. Once a week throughout this pandemic, we’ll be bringing you fun and uplifting videos, photos and posts from people throughout the diocese. Let’s get right to it!

    -The Daughters of St. Paul, aka the Media Nuns, turned the kitchen and dining area of their Alexandria convent into a Five Guys, excuse me, a Seven Sisters, in honor of one sister’s birthday. Spot that attention to detail!

     - School uniform fabric is finding new life as face masks. The chair of the uniform closet at the Cathedral School of St. Thomas More in Arlington is creating #madaboutplaid personal protective equipment. 


     - Some new life has arrived at the Benedictine Sisters of Virginia St. Benedict Monastery in Bristow. Animal lovers, brace yourselves for the sight of these fuzzy baby birds.
