Mount Saviour Monastery

September 2012
    On Sept. 3rd., Br. Francis left for Rome to serve as translator during the General Chapter of the Subiaco Congregation.  On Sept. 15th, our Prior, Fr. Joseph Gabriel went to Rome to attend the Congress of Abbots of the Benedictine Confederation which is held every 4 years.  The participants re-elected Abbot Notker Wolf as Abbot Primate.  On Sept. 24th, work began to connect the chapel with a covered link.  As the community is getting older, this project became a necessity.  The original construction was planned while the community was young and tough to face the inclement weather.  We were given a motorized wheel chair; Fr. James is using it with skill and moves around easily.  The apple harvest was small because the yield was 23% of last year's crop.
