On December 7, 2018, two men: Charles Atkinson and Martin Anderson, our postulants, left their old lives behind. In entering the novitiate they were clothed in the habit and received their monastic names, reborn within our community as they continue to discern God’s will in their lives. Charles received the name, Br. Angelus; Martin will now be known as Br. Maximilian Mary. During the next year they will pray and work under the tutelage of Fr. Jay Kythe, the Abbey’s novice master. We ask that you join us in praying for these men, that their novitiate will lead them ever closer to Christ.
