Thanks to the hard work of all the volunteers and community at Mepkin, the 2018 Crèche Festival was a wonderful way for many Lowcountry families to begin their Christmas celebrations. A total of 8,361 visitors enjoyed the displays. A highlight of the festival was the addition of 97 sheep decorated by people from all around the Lowcountry. Visitors to the festival voted for their favorites. Here are the top five:
Vocation Thought for the Day
“… and they dropped their nets and followed Jesus.” What have I allowed to keep me from following the Lord’s call?”
Mepkin Abbey Mushrooms
Oyster mushrooms have long been cultivated in Asia for their medical benefits as well as excellent taste, and are a rich source of B-Vitamins. Dried mushrooms have a concentrated and powerful flavor, so you need less of them per recipe.
It is with great pleasure that we announce the arrival of our fresh and dried shiitake and oyster mushrooms in select grocery stores in the Low Country, including Whole Foods. Our dried and powdered mushrooms are available for sale in the Abbey Store.
