After the celebration of the novices and the postulants at the Benedictine Convent (See the post on our site last Thursday), our MSC priests and Scholasticate community proceeded to our land about 15 minutes from the Benedictine convent. We had the rite of Laying the First Stone on our Chevalier House construction.
