Mount Saviour Monastery

February 2009

The Prodigal Son by Helen SieglNews:
On March 7th, Fr. Michael Perry presided at the memorial mass for Helen Siegl with her family and friends.  During the homily, we heard a list of things that Helen was never without.  The monastery has an extensive collection of her works.  After mass, the public was invited for a reception in the guest house and could see many samples of her art works.  Meanwhile, Fr. Martin left for an extended rest and recuperation.  Fr. James attended the annual meeting of Benedictine Abbots in Cullman, AL.  from Febr. 13-17.  We had a sign of warmer weather at the sight of large flocks of  geese flying north.  During the month,  students from Cornell University and Penn State spent time here.  Lent began and the illustration of Helen Siegl is an inspiration to return to the Lord.
