Moving Day Approaches

Moving Day, also known as “Monday”, is quickly approaching.  The monks are eager to settle into the newly renovated monastery. There are four “moving teams” assigned and each team will have ½ hour to move the effects of each monk from St. Joseph Hall to the monastery.  Monks are asked to have their belongings boxed and ready to move at their assigned time.

Here are some of my most recent pictures of the monastery, taken Thursday afternoon.  The monks were permitted to move some of their things over already.
