Father Richard McGuire, OCSO, who has been chaplain in Esmeraldas for the last twenty-five years, returned to Mepkin at the end of November. Father Richard, a sprightly 92-year-old, has given enormous assistance to the sisters there. They were deeply sorry to see him go. He returns to Mepkin, a place where he lived for an extended period of time, and where he acted as Prior for twenty-one years. The monks are very glad to have his kind, gentle, and gracious presence among them. We wish Father Richard many happy years upon his return to his home, Mepkin Abbey.
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.
