Piglets for Easter

On Easter Thursday, the brethren welcomed Papa Stronsay's newest inhabitants: three little piglets.  We have started raising Large Blacks, an old English breed which is quite rare now.  It's a small litter, but all three are healthy. Deo Gratias.

 Fr Magdala Maria and Br Romuald in the pigsty following the successful delivery of the piglets.

Pork for Christmas? Or do they eventually have to go to market?!

Anne B — they will be for the table I think.

It's great to be growing your own food! Deo Gratias!

I am in awe of your Monastery and your missionary zeal. I remember Redemptorist missions at Church in Brooklyn, NY back in the 1950’s. Their sermons would make your hair stand straight up and get you into that confessional that very evening. What can I do to support your ministry?
