The workers are making lots of progress on the Infirmary addition. The framework for the chapel was built up during this past week. I decided to take some aerial photos of the progress to give an interesting perspective.
We continue to enjoy beautiful and sunny weather with just enough rain to keep everything green.
We are in the middle of June and there are plenty of things going on around the Abbey. We have one vocation guest visiting right now, and one more to join him in about a week. The weather warmed up into the 90’s this week and construction is moving quickly on the addition to the Infirmary. See the progress below.
The clouds have been particularly beautiful as well as the other sights around campus.
We continue to welcome a steady flow of guests during these weeks. Next week many Abbots from monasteries throughout the United States will be here for the General Chapter, which we will host this year. Many monks will be involved in extending hospitality to them.
Workers are making quick progress on the addition to St. Stephen’s Infirmary. The expansion to the Infirmary will include six additional rooms, a chapel, among other things necessary for caring for our elderly and infirmed monks.
Easter celebrations continue as we enjoy the spring weather. Here are a few pictures from the beauty we are experiencing around campus.
