On August 10th, Fr. Martin drove to Weston VT for the 50th
anniversary of the monastery. The monks produced a video tape of their
activities. On the 14th, the blackout in our area
only lasted three hours. We were better prepared after experiencing
a long power outage not long ago. The Dedication Day on August 17th
was well attended for the mass and the festivities. Many friends
who used to help for the Fall Festival paid a a visit to reminisce special
moments of our history.
