Please say a prayer for Br. Simon Baker, OSB a monk of St. Benedict's Abbey in Kansas (one of our daughter houses). Br. Simon professed first vows on August 15th, 2009. Br. Simon is a friend of the young monks at St. Vincent Archabbey (he is shown here with our Br. Michael, OSB). May God strengthen him and grant him perseverance as he seeks to serve Him as a professed Benedictine Monk.
