Father Simeon

Give me that I may give. 
Saint Augustine

Father Simeon entered the monastery in April of 2003 and was ordained to the priesthood in May of 2013. An accomplished author, preacher and retreat master, Simeon is currently editor of the Monastic Wisdom Series for Cistercian Publications. In addition he often leads retreats in the Abbey Retreat House, pitches in as community cook and does his part in the regular round of chores.

Father Simeon tells us that he treasures: "the rhythm of  the common life that draws me back to essentials even when I am most distracted or concerned with more relative things."
