Mount Saviour Monastery
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.
