Subiaco has been extraordinarily blessed that God continues to call men to our monastery to undertake the monastic way of life. Contrary to popular opinion, monastic life is NOT dead. Our eight most recent monks who have undertaken their life-long solemn vows as monks of Subiaco Abbey--Br. Matthias of Texas, Fr. Elijah of North Carolina, Br. Cassian of Louisiana, Br. Reginald of Arkansas, Br. Pio of Texas, Brother Roch of Missouri, Brother Damien of Colorado, and Brother Basil of Arkansas. The album below contains some photos from Br. Basil's most recent solemn profession. The picture you see here includes Brother Basil reading his profession document, with his Director of Formation (Fr. Richard), following along with a watchful eye.
