Greetings! There is never a dull moment in the life of a monastic with the daily routine of prayer and work. Following the example of Jesus, the Good Shepherd, we aim be a welcoming community where people are treated with respect. The Cycle of Life Continues! Tree Planting Spring has arrived!

A Season of Change  For weeks, farmers around the country focused on bringing in the crops. Even though the weather has been challenging throughout the planting and growing season, we give thanks for the results of the harvest.  As the days get shorter and the fall climate slowly changes to cooler temperatures we prepare for winter. This is part of the cycle of nature. Change in family settings brings hope, joy, and the challenge of letting go. Death knocks at the door at unexpected times. This month of November, we especially remember our departed loved ones and trust that our lovin ..read more

Greetings! There is a saying that has come to my mind frequently that the path to hell is paved with good intentions. I will not expand on that thought but ask your pardon for not posting updates about the projects our office is supporting or on events at the monastery. Much has happened since the beginning of 2023. However, let me jump forward to April and report on my trip to Tanzania, accompanied by Prior Anastasius. I enjoyed his company and expertise in arranging all travel details. An added benefit is his fluency with the Swahili language. First on the travel itinerary was one week of va ..read more

Christ the King Priory
by Mary Vrbicky
1y ago
The Year 2022 in Review  “The Lord bless you and keep you! The Lord let his face shine upon you and be gracious to you! The Lord look upon you kindly and give you peace!” The blessing from the Book of Numbers is well known and used in liturgical prayer by all Christian denominations. This blessing is very dear to me. I am writing the first blog message for the mission office during the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (Jan. 18 through 25).  At the Last Supper, Jesus prayed that his followers be one! History and events of long ago have brought division. It took decades before religi ..read more
