St.Benedict Convent in Danshui 淡水圣本笃修院
It was a short but fruitful trip.
However, the 3 days in Taipei were dashing between airport, a convent, a monastery, a religious center and airport. It was a Holy Dash...
I arrived at Taipei at about 4:00pm with 3 other friends - Robert, Jane and Christina. Except Robert, Christina was the uni-mate of Sr. Marie, and Jane through church activities. They would attend the Solemn Profession and stay back for a retreat.
We were welcomed by the Sisters at the St. Benedict Convent in Danshui, north of Taipei. The Sisters had prepared for us comfortable rooms and delicious meals.
At night we had the opportunity to visit the night market of Danshui town and tried out the various local hawker food. (more pictures at Facebook)
