Resurrexit Sicut Dixit, Alleluia.

Easter at Serendipity Farmhouse will be quiet and reflective this year. There will be prayer, good food, and thoughts of family and friends.

When family and friends come to Serendipity, they say they can sense the peace and calm – even in their trial and travails.
