Brother Christian let us in
This very sweet and very old monk was so friendly and helpful. He said he has been at the abbey since l953 which would be SIXTY FOUR years! I wish I had asked him how old he was when he entered the abbey because then I could figure out how old he is!!!
We went into the chapel, which is beautiful. The outside walls are made of huge boulders with interesting stained glass windows.
Before leaving we chatted with Brother Christian for a little while.
After leaving the monastery we drove down to see their retreat house. These crosses are in front of the abbey, and I wonder if this is a cemetery:
And then we looked for and found ROLLING HILLS ASYLUM where I found a geocache.
On the way back to Niagara County, I made a couple of photo stops. It was a great day!!!!!
