Many group retreats were organized during the
month of January
. On Jan. 7th, a workshop on Centering prayer interested
95 participants. Later during the month a week-end retreat
devoted to centering prayer was scheduled as part of the series of
retreats at the monastery. Some local people gather in the crypt,
every Saturday at 8:30 a.m. to practice this form of prayer.
Also, seminarians from Long Island and
a group of knitters, mainly from New York City spent a few days here.
The Community retreat conducted by Abbot Thomas Hillenbrand, osb, from Blue Cloud Abbey, began on Jan, 14th. Abbot Thomas
presented some steps to revive monastic values and to make the
monastery "a vibrant spiritual place". The Rule of St. Benedict
has the power to change lives; monks of the past and lay people today
can prove it.
We are pleased to present some of the conferences of
our 50th anniversary celebration and some relevant articles in a book
edited by Fr. Martin and Dr. Anthony Cernera. We apologize for
the delay due to technical difficulties. Our friends and those
interested in monastic values will find much inspiration from these
