Getting ready for the Bridegroom's Banquet!

Last year, the beer we brewed with the assistance of Fr. Scott Goodfellow won awards at a Cleveland brewing competition and was heartily enjoyed by the guests of our Bridegroom's Banquet benefit dinner. We're hoping our "Milk & Nunny" milk stout and "Hoppy are the Pour" IPA will turn out just as delicious this year!

The Bridegroom's Banquet is only about a month away, coming up on Nov. 10, at St. Joseph Byzantine Catholic Church in Brecksville, Ohio. We still have quite a few tables open!

Please visit our Bridegroom's Banquet page to learn more about the event. Donations and pledges up to a total of $100,000 will be doubled! Wow!! If you are unable to attend the event, your donation can still be doubled. You may send a donation marked "Bridegroom's Banquet" by cash or check payable to "Christ the Bridegroom Monastery" to:

The Bridegroom's Banquet
Christ the Bridegroom Monastery
17485 Mumford Rd.
Burton, OH 44021

Thank you for all of your prayers and support!

Thank you to our Fall Work Day volunteers!

We enjoyed a wonderful day with all our generous work day volunteers who came out even though we had changed the date of our work day to Sat., Sept. 29. Many projects were tackled, including cutting up wood, pulling the plants out of the garden, cleaning up flower beds, washing windows, moving the sewing/craft room, and cleaning out the gutters. We closed the day with Great Vespers and a potluck dinner.
