Mount Saviour Monastery

August 2002

Mount Saviour Refectory
The 6th of August, the Transfiguration, is the patronal feast of the monastery.  We have a picnic in the garden with all the guests.  It marks the end of the Summer Program.  The tables of the refectory  were finished with a new coat.  On August 18th, we had the Dedication Day with a large crowd for mass and the brunch.  We were entertained with piano music by Peter Calderone, Matthew Inocelda (a summer student) and Daniel Malloy (14 years old).  A guest, Diane Cardinal, added one piece of music to the program.  Weston Priory  is celebrating its 50th anniversary.   Half the community spent  3 days there to hear some talks on monastic life by   Sr. Aquinata Bockmann , a German Benedictine who teaches at San Anselmo, Rome.  We are pleased to announce that 16 new postcards are available.
