The Harvest is Great
Back in the spring those in the novitiate under the direction of Br. David planted a vegetable garden to provide the community with fresh vegetables. And now at harvest time their labors are bearing much good fruit. Or rather, vegetables.
To date we’ve been reaping an ample daily harvest of snap beans, swiss chard, lettuce, tomatoes, squash among other things. It is not uncommon for the brothers to bring in 40 or 50 pounds of fresh vegetables each week.
Vocation Retreat Weekend
Our 11th vocation weekend is off to a good start with four young men joining us for the retreat. They will be with us from Friday afternoon until Sunday afternoon. Their schedule includes joining the community for office in choir, and meals in the refectory, several conferences and a tour of the monastery. May it be a time of grace and discernment for each one!
The next Vocation Weekends are scheduled for Memorial Day Weekend, May 27-29, 2016 and Labor Day Weekend, September 2-4, 2016.
