Luigi, if you're willing to go one state north, there is also Mount Angel Abbey in Oregon.

Thank you

To be clear, I am already attached to a Monastery.

I don't want this to sound cold and calculating

but the Bennies there are getting older. No replacements (yet). I am checking it out "just in case"

Please pray

PS-- I would never leave, unless I was forced to because it closed, BTW

Ah, I see; I will pray for you and vocations to your monastery, Luigi, and will ask my friends to do the same.

Just "re-found" this thread.

Your prayers worked!

We have a new monk (and he's even younger than me )

Good work.

Just an FYI update, but that is no longer true. There are four Postulants, two monks just graduated Novitiate and received Simple Profession, and I think three were Solemnly Professed. So fortunately Mount Angel Abbey is doing quite well, although you are correct that the older monks are by far the majority.

Although I wasn't referring to Mount Angel
