Gethsemani welcomes new postulant

The Abbey of Gethsemani recently welcomed its newest member. Postulant Richard Seal entered the monastery on Oct. 13.

During the postulancy, Richard will reside in the novitiate and live as a member of the community. At the end of this six-month discernment period, he may request to become a novice and “take the habit.”

Richard hails from nearby Ohio, the home state of several Gethsemani monks. We ask you to join us in welcoming him, and to keep Richard in your prayers.
