Christmas 2020-2021 at Santa Rita Abbey

Here are some scenes from our quiet Christmas celebration. With our chapel still closed to the public and our would-be Christmas chaplain unable to travel, it was just the eleven of us Sisters. And Jesus, Mary and Joseph, of course!

Below is a link to our Mother Vicki’s reflection on Christmas Day. She offered us several such reflections throughout the Christmas season. Visit our Reflections on the Gospel page to read them all.


We continue to keep all the peoples of our country and our world in our very special prayers during the pandemic. This was a difficult Christmas for many, and the new year is off to a rocky start, but we know that God holds all of his children in his heart.
