Dear Ladies of TASTE,

We pray this finds you and your families well.  Even as we are weighed down by the heat and problems in our world, we can be buoyed in our spirits by entering into the celebration of so many beautiful feasts in August.  We started the month celebrating St. Alphonsus Liguori and end the month with the feast of the Passion of John the Baptist.  In between we remember St. Dominic, St Claire, St. Maximillian Kolbe, St. Monica and St. Augustine - to name only a few!  We celebrated the Transfiguration of Our Lord last week and on Saturday we will joyfully celebrate the Assumption of the Blessed Mother.  She is always watching over us with her maternal love and care!  Please let yourself be refreshed by all the blessings we find in the liturgical calendar in August.

54 Day Miracle Novena: With the upcoming election and the civil unrest our nation has faced as of late, you may be searching for a way to invite God’s protection over our nation and your families at this time. If so, here is one option to consider. The 54 day novena  begins this Saturday, August 15th. For more information watch this VIDEO.  If you want to reach out to a TASTE sister who is also participating in this 54 day novena, please contact Christine Divver at or call 301-674-5729.

The TASTE theme for 2020-2021 is Surrender and Be Refreshed (for I will refresh the weary soul and replenish all who are weak -Jer 31:25) and many speakers have been booked for the Fall semester!   There are many logistics still to work out, but we are not giving up!  Your prayers, of course, continue to be the fuel for TASTE - please keep them coming!

Jesus I trust in You!
