Around the Abbey

Our Visit to New Melleray Abbey

Last Thursday the community went over to New Melleray Abbey for a celebration to say goodbye to Abbot Brendan Freeman and to welcome our new Father Immediate, Fr. Mark Scott.

We gathered in the infirmary common room and enjoyed a wonderful picnic meal, a gift of Madonna and Paul McAndrews.

After the meal, as is our tradition, we had a rousing game of volleyball even though the heat index was 102 degrees that day here in Iowa.
