Two Great Celebrations!
     On Thursday, November 25th, our nation celebrates a day for giving thanks for the blessings the Lord has given to us.  Keeping with the American tradition, the monks here at St. Benedict will partake in a special supper in the evening with the turkey dinner as well as other activities to celebrate the holiday!  However, the most appropriate way to start the day is to offer the Lord the perfect sacrifice of praise at Mass in the morning.  The Liturgy on Thanksgiving Day will be offered in the morning at 8 a.m. 

    The
following day is also a special for us as well!  We will be commemorating the life of St. Sylvester who was the founder of our Benedictine congregation in the 13th century.  This special day will be celebrated by our community worldwide.  It is also a time to give thanks to the Lord for his guidance in the life of St. Sylvester as well as our congregation throughout the centuries and ask his continued blessings on us as we look to the future.   As a solemnity for our community, like the Mass on Thanksgiving day will be offered at 8 a.m.  All are welcome to join us at both Liturgies!
