At the meal with the monks, Frater Augustine thanked the monks for the special meal for him. He also thanked them for their brotherly love shown to him that makes him happy and keep going. He also added that he whished he could do more to serve the community but he cannot due to his age.
We wish Frater Augustine many more years in the community.
Not long after the celebration of Frater Augustine patronal feast, the monks celebrated another patronal feast day of Fr. Gregory Mwageni, OSB, on September 3rd, the feast of Pope Gregory the Great. A special meal and a cake was had to honor the former and first superior of Hanga Abbey. He addressed the monks with gratitude and exhorted them to be true monks, to seek sanctity.
We thank him for the many years of service to the monks and local people.
