Chef Nolan Smith & his famous short ribs...

We were privileged to have Chef Nolan Smith cook for our 2nd Annual Open Hand Man-treat at the Rieger cabin on Raccoon Lake. He was assisted by Josh Kupke and Gary Martin.

Cheers Nolan! Thanks for the wonderful feast! Your fellow monks - Josh, Gary, Rod, Steve, Bert, Derek, Scott, Peter and apprentice Monks - John, Jay and Eric.

Brigid of Kildare 5th Century - Table Grace:

I should like a great lake of the finest ale for the King of Kings.
I should like a table of the choicest food for the family of Heaven.
Let the ale be made from the fruit of faith, and the food be forgiving love.
I should welcome the poor to my feast, for they are God's children.
I should welcome the sick to my feast, for they are God's joy.
Let the poor sit with Jesus at the highest place, and the sick dance with the angels.
God bless the poor, God bless the sick, and bless our human race.
God bless our food, God bless our drink, all homes, O God, embrace.
