Some of the monks gathered around the fireplace on Christmas Eve to listen to Br. Ignacio play many of the familiar Christmas Carols on the guitar and when we could remember some of the words we would sing along.
On Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter days, we push all the refectory tables together to have a banquet meal to celebrate the feasts. This Christmas the only guest we had join us was Maria Nazarczuk, a dear friend of Fr. Joseph and the community. Our talented cooks prepared a bountiful, delicious meal for us which we heartily enjoyed.
