Valyermo Fall Festival Update 2010
 

To Our Family, Friends, and Benefactors,

 

After the one year hiatus from the Fall Festival, the monks through much prayer and reflection, have decided not to continue to host the Fall Festival.  We have discussed other alternative ways of sharing our monastic life and culture through a celebration open to the public, but nothing as of yet has been decided.

 

We are tremendously grateful to all of our family, friends, volunteers, and generations of loved ones who have helped us with our annual Fall Festival over the past several decades. There is absolutely no adequate or sufficient way to repay you for your generosity of spirit and selfless acts of love during our many Festivals.  Nevertheless, please know of our heartfelt gratitude, appreciation, and prayers of thanksgiving for your many years of dedication and commitment.

 

We hope that you will continue to visit the Abbey periodically throughout the year and so continue the bonds of friendship that have developed and remained over the years.  Thank you again for your faithful support.  Be assured of our prayers for you. 

 

          Monks of St. Andrew’s Abbey, Valyermo.
