St. Joseph’s Abbey in Spencer, Mass.

I recently had the great blessing of going on a week-long Buddhist-Christian monastic retreat with friends from the Harvard Divinity School. We started at the New England Buddhist Vihara in Grafton, a small community of the most adorable Sri Lankan Theravadin monks, then spent a day at the Empty Bell, a Buddhist-Christian retreat center in Northampton, and concluded our retreat at St. Joseph’s Abbey in Spencer. Below are some photos that I took at St. Joseph’s Abbey:
