Visitors to our Motherhouse often receive a cookie or two as a
gesture of hospitality. Young visitors quickly memorize the
location of our cookie drawer where eight tins (give or take a few)
are ready at the wait. But from where do all those cookies
Meet Sister Gerald Lu Maye, our resident cookie and bread
expert. Each Monday and on the occasional Saturday you can
find her in the kitchen mixing or kneading, rolling and baking
Since everybody loves a cookie, we thought it would be fun to
give away a dozen. If you'd like to enter the drawing, send your
