Mount Saviour Monastery
The mailing of the Dedication Day
letter was delayed because the machine we borrow to transfer
more than 8,000labels broke down. Thanks to many guests, we organized
a "corvée" (= bee)to do the work by hand. It was suggested that
we acquire a printer to printthe addresses and so avoid the labels in the
future. Every month, Fr. James Kelly is assigned to
preach in a parish for the organisation Food for the Poor.
It is away to help a good cause and to make the monastery known outside
our area. Our shearing day drew a large crowd and, with the cooperation
of many helpers and the sheep themselves, 174 animals were processed in
4 hours with 2 shearers.
Visit of the Abbot Primate:
On May 15th, Abbot Primate Notker Wolf paid an overnight visit
and talked to the community. His dynamism and experience was enriching
and we could dialogue on monastic life as seen around the world.
Mount Saviour is among half a dozen monasteries under hisjurisdiction.
