Especially To my G+ Louisville, Ky Community Members;
"An enjoyable evening spent among monks, seminarians, and friends last night. Following a pleasant dinner at St. Meinrad's with conversation over good food and wine, a new building was inaugurated in an ancient ritual of water and blessing. St. Meinrad's is a treasure, and only 73 miles from home in Louisville's Highlands." Ken Stammerman
Growing up in the village of Saint Meinrad, Indiana, I was glad to get away as a youngster. Those infernal bells ringing at all hours. As an old man I am ready to go back when the time comes, as my ashes are to be spread on the old homestead. Actually anywhere on the abbey grounds would do, as my great, great grandparents sold their cabin to the monks in 1854, which became the first Saint Meinrad Monastery. +Tom Denning
