May we find hope in the lights we have kindled on this sacred night, hope in one another and in all who form the web-work of peace and justice that spans the world. In the heart of every person on this Earth burns the spark of luminous goodness. May we who have celebrated this winter solstice, by our lives and service, by our prayers and love, call forth from one another the light and love that is in every heart.

Welcome Autumn! As we mark the beginning of this beautiful season reflect on Mary Oliver's words:
In the deep fall
don’t you imagine the leaves think how
comfortable it will be to touch
the earth instead of the
nothingness of air and the endless
freshets of wind? And don’t you think
the trees themselves, especially those with mossy,
warm caves, begin to think
of the birds that will come — six, a dozen — to sleep
inside their bodies? And don’t you hear
the goldenrod whispering goodbye,
the everlasting being crowned with the first
tuffets of snow? The pond
vanishes, and the white field over which
the fox runs so quickly brings out
its blue shadows. And the wind pumps its
bellows. And at evening especially,
the piled firewood shifts a little,
longing to be on its way.
~ Mary Oliver

Don't forget to make Jubilee Farm part of your holiday shopping this year.
Tuesday proved to be our best day of the fall season at Jubilee Farm... so far. The weather conditions were almost ideal, cloudy skies and very little wind. We captured 57 birds (52 newly banded and 5 recaptures) of 16 species (see attached for details). We had at least 3 instances today of walking up to a net that had 10+ birds captured within! The high count was the 20 birds in Net 8 (bridge net), which included 14 Cedar Waxwings (13 were banded with 1 escapee)! It was quite exciting! Our season total stands at 414 birds captured (385 newly banded and 29 recaptures) of 62 species. We also did add 2 species to the cumulative station total (currently 78 species): Yellow-bellied Sapsucker and Dark-eyed Junco. Ba**er Tony Rothering and his assistants, Grace Norris and Samantha Reif did a great job with the high volume of birds! They might need a raise ... or bring more donuts ... 🙂 Next Tuesday (11/16) will be our last banding day for the Fall 2021 season. We can only hope the results will be similar!!
Beautiful sunrise at Jubilee Farm, and the "birds" are watching us put up nets. Maybe next time buddy!

Ask the LORD for rain in the springtime; it is the LORD who sends the thunderstorms. He gives showers of rain to all people, and plants of the field to everyone. Zechariah 10:1 Celebrate the end of winter and the beginning of spring with a walk on the trails at Jubilee Farm.
#FeedingHungers Tip #6: Feeding the hunger of the Earth. Earth’s ecosystem is the origin, support, and sustenance of all life. Earth feeds us: bodies, minds, and spirits. We recognize our interdependence with the whole Earth community and have affirmed several corporate stances that acknowledge this: recognizing global climate change, calling for nuclear disarmament, seeking right relationship with all creation and limiting the genetically modified organisms. At Jubilee Farm, our center for ecology and spirituality, we endeavor to model the care required for the sustainability of Earth. ⁠ #CatholicSistersWeek #CSW2021
