January 2005

The new year started without snow on the ground.  On January 2nd. the community was invited to the ladies guest house for high tea prepared by Maureen Cadley.  On the 6th, we saw our first significant snow fall with 8 inches of snow and ice.  This time of the year is rather quiet at the monastery because the weather can be risky for the guests who have to travel long distance.  We were spared if we compare with other cities around us.  Fr. Martin joined the monks of Weston for a series of lectures in Cuernavaca, Mexico.  At the end of the month, he attended the annual meeting of the North American Benedictine Aboots at the Prince of Peace Abbey in California.
