A Message from Fr. Boniface, prior

As many of you know our community is quite elderly and unable to receive new members. So we must look forward to the completion of what God has called us to do and be.

We hope to turn the operation of the monastery over to the Misioanrios Servadores de la Palabra (Missionaries Servant of the Word), who specialize in evangelization. We will remain here on the second floor of the monastery and continue to offer daily and Sunday Mass and whatever other services we can. They are arriving on September 18, 2021.

We are very grateful to you for making our life possible and know you will welcome our successors with the same goodness you have shown us.
