Onward and upward
Congratulations to our five new novices who received their scapulars (with hoods) and coronas (or tonsures) today. Officially invested as members of the Saint Meinrad Archabbey monastic community were Novice Timothy Herrmann, O.S.B., Novice Jinu Thomas, O.S.B., Novice Peter Szidik, O.S.B., Novice Jonathan Blaize, O.S.B., and Novice Thomas Fish, O.S.B. They joined us as candidates in October. Learn more about them by clicking here.
This is the biggest incoming class of novices we've had here in almost 20 years. In the novitiate/juniorate, they join four juniors in temporary vows and two other novices who were invested in August.
In all cases, may God bless and guide their discernment with peace. Pray for the Lord to send more laborers for the harvest!
