Monastery Christmas at the Monastery

     The Christmas Liturgies here at St. Benedictís are always a beautiful and prayerful experience and this year was no exception.  Glittering lights and a selection of carols greeted over 100 of our friends and neighbors as they arrived on Christmas Eve for the Mass celebrated by our Prior, Fr. Damien Gjonaj.  On Christmas morning the Mass was presided by our Sub-prior, Fr. Gregory-David Jones which was attended by a smaller gathering, but nonetheless was still a spiritually uplifting celebration of our Lordís birth.  Afterward, the monastic community celebrated the day with the Christmas Liturgy of the Hours and a sumptuous meal prepared by Br. Marty Singer.  As we begin the year 2021, may we grow in our appreciation of what the heavenly Fatherís blessed gift of His Son and share joy of what the incarnation means for all humanity!
