Open House May 9, 2014

Now Simon Peter was standing there keeping warm. And they said to him, “You are not one of his disciples, are you?” He denied it and said, “I am not.” One of the slaves of the high priest, a relative of the one whose ear Peter had cut off, said, “Didn’t I see you in the garden with him?” Again Peter denied it. And immediately the cock crowed. THIS ICON WAS WRITTEN BY MOTHER BENEDICTA May 9, 2014 – The Open House with Bishop James Wall Friday, May 9, 2014, 2-4 pm was a wonderful ceremony, which included the Blessing of the Icon of St. Peter written by Mother Benedicta.  We had about 40 guests including many priests from the area and Abbot Philip and the monks of the Monastery of Christ in the Desert. The Knights of Columbus were here also.  Thank you for your support!  Official names of the buildings are:                    St. Benedict’s Guesthouse, St. Joseph’s Center, St. Walburga’s (new Clayton Home modular), and Subiaco (sisters residence)
