the new bell tower at St. Gregory's Abbey
St. Gregory's Abbey is on Abbey Road (the signs are very often spirited away). It is an Episcopalian Benedictine Abbey with two guesthouses for visitors. The bell tower was completed last year. In front of it is the church and to the rear is the library where I once worked part-time helping the abbot/librarian with the production of catalog cards and the processing and shelving of books, and in the process learning a great deal about recent scholarship on Christianity.
St. Gregory's has many acres of old woods and more recent tree farming. It is a very beautiful place to be and worship.
