Easter Charity
      On April 10th, the Monday of Holy Week, our community continued our Lenten tradition of preparing bags of food for poor families in our area.   We gathered with our Oblates and friends at Subiaco Retreat House to organize and put together the donated food and items purchased by the monastery.  The evening concluded with a blessing on the 20 bags and 35 Easter baskets given by our Prior, Fr. Damien Gjonaj. 

      As always, we are deeply grateful for the help we received in the project, including both food and monetary assistance.  This “bountiful harvest” will be dropped off for distribution by the Christian Service coordinator of St. Joseph’s Church, Lake Orion.  This will be truly a blessing to our brothers and sisters in need!
