Gethsemani welcomes new postulant

The Abbey of Gethsemani has a new member. Hailing from Mississippi, Danny Hathorn entered as a postulant on May 15.

After the six-month postulancy, Danny may request entry to the novitiate. At that point, he will take a monastic name and habit. He will then be addressed as “brother” and begin taking on liturgical duties.

Please join us in praying for Postulant Danny as he discerns his Trappist vocation.
