Mount Saviour Monastery

March 2013
Easter at Mount Saviour Monastery
The community went to Grace Episcopal Church in Elmira NY to sing Vespers and Compline and share a meal with the congregation.  It is an ecumenical tradition that we have shared for many years.  On the 13th, Prior Joseph Gabriel and Br. Gabriel went to New York City for the Oblate meeting and to visit a long time friend, Elizabeth Fuller who could reminisce on the early years of Mount Saviour Monastery.  We were able to witness the presentation of the new Pope and some of his activities that followed his election.  Fr. Bernard from Christ in the Desert arrived to spend a couple months with us.  We celebrated the solemnity of St. Joseph and of St. Benedict before the services of Holy Week.  The Easter celebration is always a memorable occasion to express our faith with many friends who come from far away, every year.
