On Sunday we invited our donors and benefactors to join us for Mass, a banquet, and an open house and tour of the newly renovated monastery. Many local friends from around the Abbey were also invited to take a look at our new house.  The Basilica was completely filled with guests as we extended our hospitality and communicated our gratitude.  Thank you!
