The monks began decorating the monastery and dining room yesterday.  Some of the monks spent the morning and afternoon decorating such spaces as the dining room, the community room, St. Raphael Hall, and they began assembling the crib in the Basilica.

Monday evening the monks had a special social hour where they placed ornaments on the Christmas tree.
