With Autumn now in full swing, we are being treated to a very splendid display of color in the Chama Canyon wilderness.
Today’s photo was taken by one of our monks  traversing Forest Service Road 151 that leads to the Monastery. The thirteen mile “driveway” is always a “scenic route,” and especially so at this time of year.
Our annual appeal for the purchase of propane for heating in the Winter is going very well and we are grateful beyond words for the generosity of our friends. Thank you from the heart!
Winters can be cold here and heating is needed in our buildings, including the church, refectory, lobby, monks’ cells, the main Guesthouse, Ranch House, Giftshop, Laundry, various work and class rooms and more. We will survive the coming months!
We are doing well, thanks be to God, enjoying pleasant weather, though continuing to pray for rain, of which we are always in need.
With this comes our greetings and assurance of our prayers for the needs and intentions of all our families, friends, benefactors and oblates. Please keep us in your prayers. Thank you.
Abbot Christian and the monks
