At Sunday Mass on August 14, 2016, our novice Brother James Vo makes his simple, temporary vows, as a Benedictine monk. Family and friends were on hand for the joyous event.

Brother James is now among the fifteen other brothers in temporary vows here, often called “the Juniorate.” We rejoice greatly in the growth of our Monastery with these young men who have made their first commitments to the contemplative monastic life.
