"On March 1, a snowy Sunday morning, a diverse group of hardy guests gathered at the ICCC for a “Yummy Argentinean Brunch”.
Who could resist such an invitation, knowing that Sister Diana would have been cooking delicacies such as empanadas late into the night, and Sister Blandine and Fr. Alex would attend to all the inviting details awaiting us? Natalia was our charming and informative MC as we learned more about Argentina than most of us knew before: the tradition of drinking mate, with sampling; singing traditional songs together, such at Ojos de Cielo;seeing a visual presentation of the beautiful country itself, with a surprise ending of a photo of Pope Francis; and a traditional dance in which Natalia called out the steps while Fr. Alex (in a red cape!) and Sister Diana moved gracefully to the music. Wonderful!
Viva Argentina! Viva Heart’s Home!"
