Mount Saviour Monastery

October 2013
Br. Teresio at Mount SaviourNews:
A new roof on St. Joseph's guest house was the largest expense this season: $21,500.  On Oct. 8 and 9, Sr. Pat Hudson addressed the community on the topic of child abuse and its ramifications.  Her training in psychology and her involvement with the clergy, especially in the Brooklyn diocese, enabled her to have good insights on the problem.  On the 16th, the Prior went to Syracuse for an  oblate meeting of the friends of the monastery in that area.  We were lucky with the weather conditions and we needed to turn on the heating system only on the 20th.  On October 29th, the Prior attended a meeting of representatives from monasteries of the east coast at the Abbey of Regina Laudis, in Connecticut.  The orchard was very active in September and October with a record crop: 18,400 pounds of apples.  We sold over 2,000 pounds of top quality apples in the Shop.  Br. John and his team made 750 gallons of apple cider.  We were able to give away over 1,000 pounds of apples and fruits to the local Food Bank.  The picture shows Br. Teresio picking up apples
