Living in the country has benefits and inconvenience.  We have no cable for TV or the internet in the area and we were content with a slow and expensive telephone line to access the world wide web.  In June, Hans Koomen provided some equipment and his expertise to hook most of our computers to a network connected to a satellite internet service.  It was a good deal since the cost is equal to what we were paying for a phone line and a dial-up service.  So many good things can be searched on the internet and it is an extension of our library.  On June 17th, Fr. Martin and Br. Gabriel attended the General Chapter of the American Cassinese Congregation in Atchison KS.  Br. James Cronen celebrated his 80th birthday on the 19th. "Ad multos annos!".

Coming Events:
Dedication Day will be Sunday, August 12 with Mass at 10 AM followed by a brunch and then music in the Chapter Room around 12:30 P.M.  This is a special occasion when we thank God that we are here and thank all the people who have helped us be here.  We invite you to join us in thanking God for the blessings you have received especially in the past year.
