Call it divine intervention.

For the second straight year, a wicked thunderstorm threatened the St. Benedict Education Foundation's Sunset at the Barn, which is held on the patio of the education barn at the Winnie Palmer Nature Center at St. Vincent College in Unity.

Luckily, the reception is preceded by Mass, and a little prayer never hurts.

So on Aug. 19, the clouds rolled away and the sun reappeared in time for attendees to gather outdoors for cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, socializing and music by saxophonist James Boggs.

The annual soiree raises funds for scholarships for monks and nuns from third world countries to study at Sant' Anselmo, an international Benedictine university in Rome.

Traveling north from Bluffton, S.C., for the event was Harry Haslam, new chairman of the foundation's board.

Committee members included foundation president Father Benoit Alloggia, along with Carolyn Backus, Jack and MaryAnn Cherubini, Angelo and Pam DeMezza, Bernadette Domenic, Carmen Eisaman, Jim and Maureen Laffey, Lisa Poole, Malinda Sherid and Clyde and Janelle Snyder.

Seen: Carl Eisaman, Mike Backus, Chuck and Nancy Anderson, Eric and Michele Bononi, Jerry and Mary Frances DeFabo, Barbara Griffin, Carmen and Paula Pedicone, John Sherid, Richard and Joanna Stillwagon, Don and Rosemary Tarosky and Paul and Donna Urhinek.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
