St. Sylvester Guzzolini, a native of
the Marche Region of Italy, adopted the Rule of St.
Benedict as the basis for the religious communities
he founded in thirteenth century. Thus, on
November 26th, the Feast of St. Sylvester our
community world-wide honors the spiritual father if
our Sylvestrine-Benedictine Congregation. A
solemn Mass will be celebrated in the morning with a
homily preach by our Prior, Fr. Michael Green.
Later in the afternoon, the monks will gather for
fellowship, a special meal and other activities to
celebrate the day. Celebrating our heritage is
not only a way to remember the past, but also a way
for us to be inspired and look forward to our future
carrying on the legacy of our holy founders.
