Friar Steve Kluge gives us a Talk on the Eucharist

Friar Steve said that our Eucharist is not a private function- It is a Holy work stemming from our Baptism. We are a royal Priesthood and we remember who we are. Our baptism gives us an identity and a mission. When is the church must Church. The answer is at Sunday Mass.

Friar Steve gave us much to ponder during this Lenten Season which begins with being attentive at Mass.

February 10, 2010- Winter Storm

The Monastery Grounds looked so beautiful that we needed to share with you the beauty.

We have been aware of all the people without electricity and power along with the people who are still struggling in Haiti. so our prayers are with them daily. We also pray for the homeless and those struggling financially. All these intentions we hold close to our heart.
