At the Community Eucharist on July 11, the feast of St Benedict, Fr Joe clothed Dr Richard Fitzgerald with a black oblate robe to signify that he is an oblate of the Benedictine Abbey of St Vincent, Latrobe. Dr Fitzgerald will wear the robe when he joins the Mepkin Community for Office or Eucharist. Dr Fitzgerald who has been Mepkin’s physician for 12 years was joined at the celebration by his wife Eva, his friend David George and his godson Nathaniel.
Vocation Thought for the Day
“Mary said a yes that had an impact on every other aspect of her life. Saying yes to God is like that. Am I saying yes to God?”
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.
