Today is the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary into Heaven - and, hence, our patronal feast here at Assumption Abbey. The day is filled with good liturgies, prayer and thanksgiving. The pictures are of the statue of Mary being assumed into heaven located in front of the church. The awesome flowers are kept by one of the talented parishioners - she does a great job. May your day continue to be blessed.

Today we had a picnic for the 4th of July after noon prayer. Br. Alban and Br. Jacob did a great job of pulling everything together - with some help from other monks. The food was delicious and the weather was nice - as long as one was in the shade. Br. Bertrand contributed some homemade ice cream, also.

We hold 2 Oblate weekends every year for our oblates. These are folks who live the Rule of St. Benedict as their state in life permits. The weekend is a time for some quiet, prayer with the monastic community, conferences on the monastic life, and fellowship. Here are a few pictures taken Friday evening at supper.

We had an invigorating snowstorm last Sunday. It was 'suggested' that we received about 13 inches of snow. So, Monday was spent digging out. Br. Louie and Br. Jacob did great work with the tractor and skid-steer. The rest of us shoveled out door-ways and around cars. We have been pretty dry out in the western part of N. Dakota, so are very thankful for the moisture. Here are a few pictures.
