Benedictine Hospitality - St. Benedict Abbey, Still River, MA

On Columbus Day this year, October 10, 2011, the monks of St. Benedict Abbey of Still River, MA, hosted a  picnic for their extended family and friends.  I was blessed to attend. It was a reunion of sorts, with many of us reconnecting for the first time in awhile.

The pictures say more than I ever could, so enjoy.  I took them all!
