The principle celebrant at Mass gives a homily at the Mass on all Sundays and Solemnities and usually on weekdays, too. The homily seeks to apply the Scripture readings of the Liturgy of the Word to the aspirations, experiences, and present needs of the brothers and of the monastic community as a whole. We believe that this monastic application of the Word of God is appreciated our guests and retreatants, together with a small group of local Catholics who regularly attend the community Mass.
