This past Saturday, July 30th, a number of our monks were able to attend the Pontifical Solemn Mass and blessing of Abbot Aidan Gore at the Benedictine Abbey of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Pecos, New Mexico, which belongs to the Olivetan Benedictine Congregation.

The photo shows Abbot Aidan (in white vestment and miter) next to Archbishop John Wester, (in green) Archbishop of Santa Fe, who conferred the blessing. Also in the photo is Abbot Joel of the Norbertine  Abbey in Albuquerque and the monastic community at Pecos.

Ad multos annos, Abbot Aidan!
