Keep an eye on the mailbox for the Spring newsletter! In this issue we tell you stories about the people that help us run the monastery-our farmer, financial advisors etc.-and let people who have attended a Monastic Immersion Weekend and retreat write about their experiences. You’ll find this newsletter full of meaningful and interesting stories including a wonderful recollection about our natural cemetery.
Then…DRUM ROLL PLEASE…in the fall look for an opportunity to make a donation and receive our OWN CALENDAR! Yes, HCA will publish a beautiful new liturgical calendar full of gorgeous photos of the monks, the property and nature here in the Shenandoah Valley.
Unlike most calendars ours will be from December to December following the liturgical calendar of the church and will highlight Cistercian and monastic saints during each month.
With our new calendar you’ll be able to see and feel our beautiful monastery every day of the year!
