Christmas Tree Trimming 

It’s that time of year when grown men dressed in black robes channel their inner child and gather with great excitement to decorate the Christmas tree. Okay, maybe I’m only referring to Br. Cyprian.

The monks had their annual tree trimming party in the monastery recreation room. Several monks contributed ornaments to the trees and relaxed to enjoy one another’s company. These days before and after Christmas are especially fun and blessed days for life in community.Above: Br. Cyprian takes a step back to survey the progress.
