Please be sure to check out the blog on Conception Abbey’s main website to see my latest contribution: 5 Ways to Live Like a Monk in the World.
Yesterday evening we had two vocation candidates arrive. On Friday evening we will have six more arrive for the weekend, and we will add one more on Saturday evening. Yes- that is a total of nine men visiting the monastery this weekend and further exploring if God is calling them to monastic life at Conception Abbey. It is always a joyful time to share such with others the wonderful call to be a monk. Please keep these men in your prayers!
This past week we have had several special feast days (Immaculate Conception, Gaudete Sunday, and Our Lady of Guadalupe) which gave us the opportunity to use some of our more elegant vestments and decorations.
