Visitators visit St. Peter’s Abbey

Two monks from the United States visited St  Peter’s Abbey Nov. 11-14 to conduct a visitation. The visitors were Prior Bradley Jenniges of St. John’s Abbey (Minnesota), centre left, and Abbot Placid Solari of Belmont Abbey (North Carolina).  A visitation is a periodic examination of monastic life as lived at St. Peter’s. They discussed their report with the community on Sunday afternoon, Nov. 14.
