Mount Saviour  Monastery

February 2013
Mount Saviour Chapel in winter
From Febr. 1-5, Fr. Joseph Gabriel attended the annual meeting of Abbots held , this year, at Prince of Peace Abbey in San Diego CA.  On Febr. 7th, Br. Joseph went to Clayton GA to visit his brother James Janeczko who had an advanced cancer.  A few days after his return, Br. Joseph was informed that his brother had died.  On the 11th, Fr. Patrick Mundy left for Plattsburg NY where he will enjoy his retirement after helping us with his priestly ministry.  Shrove Tuesday is always a free day to relax.  Some monks went to Ithaca for an outing and visit a museum.  At the end of the day, we reminisced with a video on what happened 10 years ago and 20 years ago.  In 1993, we had the worst blizzard on the East Coast.  This year, the snow never landed heavily in our area.  On the 15th, Br. Francis went to visit his family in South America.  At the end of month, we replaced the reading at the evening meal with music.
