On Sunday I took Brothers Michael, David, Luke, Matthew, and Novice Walter to Lake Mozingo for the afternoon. Casey, a young man who will enter the monastery in July, also joined us. We spent the time playing volleyball, kickball, and visiting with one another on a beautiful day. Brs. Luke and Matthew went swimming for a while. The outing was primarily for the three junior monks, a little way to celebrate and enjoy one another’s company during the summer.
The highlight of the afternoon was going to Dairy Queen for ice cream on our way back to the Abbey.
Last week there was a rather strong thunderstorm, which took down a large limb from one of the trees in St. Michael’s plaza.
