Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall, at the Monastery we keep up the principal obligation of monks: namely,  the worship of God in public and private, as well as prayer for the needs and intentions of all people.
In today’s photo, Prior Bonaventure and Brother Isidore are vested for our 5:45 pm Sunday Vespers and Benediction in our monastery church, dedicated to Saint John the Baptist.
We are happy to report that recent rains have been good for the earth but for the moment have ceased. Forest Service Road 151 leading to the Monastery is dry now and the National Forest around us is open once again.
Our church and Giftshop are open during the day, and visitors and pilgrims are welcome.
The months roll by, and already it is July. Enjoy this month and next, traditionally a time of vacation.
Be assured of our prayers.
Abbot Christian and the monks
