Noreida Paulin and her family enjoyed dinner with us at the monastery on Sunday, but she didn't have to cook it. That's because she recently retired after working 20 years in food services at the monastery. We honored and thanked her for those years. We got to know Noreida very well during her time with us, and to say we'll miss her, is an understatement. We'll miss not only the good food she prepared but also her personal presence. Sisters described her as friendly, a super cook, cheerful, helpful, reliable, humorous, creative, even-tempered, and of course, ever faithful. With all that said, maybe she’ll come back. Happy retirement, Noreida!
