Chaminade is from Ohio and he maintains our website trappist.net. He is also gifted with writing and photography. I hope to do a book with him one of these days - pictures of our life here with some essays..
Augustine is out tallest monk. He is easy to spot in any crowd. He is originally from Chicago. He was professed last year. He has many jobs here, one of which is assigning the work among the monks and making sure that things run smoothly - not an easy job because of the size of the place and the constant need for manpower. He does well with it though and things that need to be done get done.
