Thursday, November 29, was Monk Day for the 7th and 8th graders, who recently studied the Rule of St. Benedict and medieval monasticism. They interspersed periods of prayer and Bible reading with work and study, in imitation of medieval monks. Several of the students dressed in monk attire. All the students practiced copying and illuminating Scripture passages. The students also did extensive work on the school campus — raking, building above ground flower beds, spreading mulch, and moving dirt.
Pictured below are the monks: solemn, working, and gleeful. It was a great day!
