It has been a busy month and posting regularly has been a challenge. During the month of March we welcomed four monastery vocation guests. For each man, it was at least his second visit, which is always a good sign to welcome men back to our monastery.

Fr. Victor returned from Washington, D.C. and joined us for some board games one evening. Our game of choice for the week has been Ticket to Ride.

March 17-19 I helped out with a retreat in Estes Park, Colorado at the YMCA of the Rockies. There were 130 junior high and high school students on this Discipleship retreat. I heard confessions all weekend, gave a few talks, and celebrated Mass for the group. It was a powerful experience in a beautiful place.

Our Infirmary building is undergoing some construction. We are building an addition which will increase the amount of rooms for the residents and enlarge the chapel. We broke ground within the past week and I am eager to offer photo updates of the progress.
