Abbot Jeremy and the monks of Mount Angel Abbey

Mount Angel monks celebrate vocations

Each year in September, the monks of Mount Angel Abbey celebrate milestones in the vocational journey. This year was cause for extraordinary joy as two men joined the community as novices, four men made their first, or "simple" vows, and three men professed their final, "solemn" vows for life. In addition, Abbot Gregory Duerr renewed his vows as he celebrated his 60th anniversary of monastic commitment.
