Mount Saviour Monastery

December 2013
On December 7th, Br. Teresio, a native of Kenya, was received as a novice.  Two days later, Br. Luke (John Zimnicky) made his simple profession.  The Prior was in New York City from Dec. 11th to the 14th for the Oblates' meeting.  On Dec. 21st.  Br. Antonio visited his family in Mexico and stopped to visit Christ in the Desert for a few days.  He is scheduled to have heart surgery at the end of January.  On Christmas Eve, we had our annual blessing of the Creche following Vespers with many children in attendance.  The evenings after Christmas Day are marked with special recreations to honor the feastday of Br. Stephen, Br. John and Br. David (in absentia) and one evening to sing Christmas Carols with all the guests.  Fr. Michael Perry spent a week among us to celebrate mass while the Prior was visiting his family and preparing a coming retreat.  We had a New Year's Eve celebration prepared by Fr. Michael.  Our sincere thanks to our friends and benefactors for their generosity during the year.
