Responding to Pope Francis' call for a day of fasting and prayers for peace, we will be having a Holy Hour at our monastery on September 7, 2013. It will begin with silent prayer in common at 7 PM, and conclude with Compline and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. If you are in the Lufkin area, please consider joining us as we pray for peace in Syria and the world! Even if you cannot come please say a prayer and fast in some way for this important cause and this difficult situation. As Tennyson once wrote, "More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of"!
