Saint Andrew's Abbey

Learning about monks....we decided to visit some!  This was great the middle of nowhere, but a perfect, warm, January day.  Grammy S joined us again.  Which was especially wonderful because she graciously helped wrangle the littles when it was "quiet time" during the presentations.

Our day included :

  • calligraphy  instruction
  • breakfast 
  • tour of the ceramics factory
  • learning Gregorian chant
  • participating in a Latin mass
  • tour of the grounds
  • lunch and q & a with a monk

Calligraphy instruction.

Touring the ceramics factory.

Discovering turtles in the pond!
