Postcard of the day, December 30, 2017

Over 100 volunteers–monks, seminaries, carpenters, timber framers, and community members helped raise the frame for the Mount Angel Abbey's Benedictine Brewery in Mt. Angel, Oregon. We've put together a blog post and a video of the day that you are welcome to enjoy. 

Said Chris, the Project Manager for the monastery, "This raising is a ton of right in a wrong way world. Yeah, it fits right in with the mission of the brewery (support the Abbey, support local charities, support local economics), but it's a lot more than that. We can shout out all the buzz words – sustainable, diversity, green, eco, community, but I think this is far beyond all that. It feels like making a change for good and right one community step at a time." It really did feel that special on raising day...many thanks to the many hands that joined.
