Mepkin Abbey is a community of Roman Catholic monks established in 1949 on the site of the historic Mepkin Plantation located on the Cooper River, north of Charleston, South Carolina. Founded by the monks of Gethsemani in Kentucky, the brothers of Mepkin belong to the worldwide Order of Cistercians of the Strict Observance popularly known as Trappist. Following The Rule of St. Benedict, the monks at Mepkin Abbey devote their lives to prayer, spiritual study, work and hospitality. Living by the work of their hands, the monks provide a livelihood for themselves and the poor.
Can you make a donation to Mepkin?
Because we closed our front gate and stopped all visitors to the monastery, no one at Mepkin has caught the virus. However, also because of this shutdown, which was necessary to keep us safe, we lost all of our income producing activities, including our mushroom production, the Retreat Center, and the Abbey Store. We have no idea when we will be able to resume these activities.
If you, too, are suffering economic hardships, please know that you are in our prayers. If you are in a safe financial position, perhaps you would consider making a donation to Mepkin to help us sustain our life of prayer, so we can be ready to welcome visitors, guests and retreatants back into our midst when all is safe.

Thank you and God bless you and your loved ones.

Vocation Thought for the Day
“I sought the Lord and he answered me.” These words from the Psalms encourage us to seek God if we wish to understand God’s ways. God answers those who seek him. Our lives are more than finding ways to distract ourselves from boredom or worry. After surrendering the distraction of entertainments, what fills you with a sense of the goodness and richness of life?大象配资平台专业线上炒股 山西股票配资-证券股票配 官网 杜德配资官方,配资 YTJ 看 杜德配资下载 在线 杜德配资场外配资-
