Two brothers mark 60 years of vows

Two monks recently celebrated 60 years of vows at Gethsemani this year. Br. Simeon reached his anniversary on March 25, the Solemnity of the Annunciation. Br. Conrad reached the milestone less than a month later on April 18.

A Kentucky native, Br. Conrad is familiar to many of our friends and neighbors, as well as to many of the monastic observers who have visited the abbey to discern their vocation.

For those who have not seen it, there is a short video below that was posted several years ago after Br. Simeon’s 50th anniversary.

Please join us in saying a prayer of gratitude for their faithful and cheerful perseverance.
