The 4th of July is celebrated with a picnic in the garden.
It is also the start of the Summer Program for young men who want
to experience Christian life in a monastery with theory and practice: classes
on Scriptures and Monastic history and manual work with interaction. Our
group, this year, came from Hawaii to New York City. The photo shows
Christopher Kelly, Robert Evanila, Matthew Inocelda, Edison
Tyag and John Houston. They used their skills in the
garden, in the woods and around the monastery.
The feast of St. Benedict (July 11th) is
celebrated with more solemnity in March. This time,
Br. Rodrigo , a visiting monk from Christ in the Desert,
prepared a Mexican meal. In the afternoon, Maureen
Cadley offered English tea at St.Gertrude's.
Most of the work in the refectory
is finished: new windows were installed and the tables were taken away for
refinishing. Those who will attend the Dedication Day will see the
Dedication Day: August 18th. Mass at 10:00
followed by a light brunch and music program.
St. Benedict’s monasteries are Schools for the Lord’s Service
In response to the invitation of Jesus: “Learn of Me.”
If you long for life and would see good days
And that invitation resonates in you
