Last week marked the arrival of four new Vietnamese monks to Spencer. They will be the Abbey's special guests for the next two years and will immerse themselves fully into the daily life and rhythm of the community in order to be enriched by Trappist life in America. In this picture, Br. Peter Tu from Our Lady of Grace Monastery stands front and center in the Abbey's wardrobe on the day Fr. Luke (in black scapular) led them to try on their new cowls.
