We honor our jubilarians this evening with a special “Gaudeamus” (Let us rejoice) celebration in the monastic refectory.  It is a house tradition that the younger members of the monastic community put on some form of entertainment to honor and recognize the jubilarians.  In the last few years, there has been everything ranging from humorous to sincere:  songs, game/quiz shows, videos, and even impersonations.  The evening’s celebration is always a highlight for everyone during Thanksgiving week, where we are gathered as one.  Stay tuned to see what the young monks have planned.

This year’s jubilarians are shown below, in a “then and now” fashion.  Congratulations, Jubilarians, Ad Multos Annos!
