Two of the sisters from Esmeraldas, the Mother Superior Celia and Sister Yessika, spent a week at Mepkin in November. Father Joe invited them so they would experience the celebration of Joy Never Ending and see the Crèche Festival. It also gave the benefactors the opportunity to meet and greet with the sisters. It was a beautiful week of friendship and shared communion despite the language barrier. They brought back to us great news of how Father Stan is settling in and how happy they are to have him as their chaplain. It was truly a special week.
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.
