Gathering as Brothers

      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.
