Monastery News

Dear Friends, Benefactors and all those who knew Fr. Bob.

We thank all of you who have sent messages of condolence to the community after the death of Fr Bob Lussier. Mass of Christian burial was celebrated at the monastery on Saturday April 27th at 10:30 am, with internment in the monastic cemetery. We estimate there were about 100 people in attendance for the funeral, Fr Bob loved, and was loved by so many. We thank you for being here with us during this difficult moment.

Two of Fr. Bob's nieces and two cousins were here and we are grateful for their presence with us. As we mourn Fr. Bob, we hold onto the wonderful memories of his life and all that he did for so many people. He will be missed by all.

We thank Berardinelli Funeral Home in Santa Fe for all they did, for their graciousness and gentle presence. They helped ease the burden of the loss in so many ways.

As a Community we pray for the repose of the soul of Fr. Bob, and we look forward to the day when we can once again be in his presence, singing forever the praises of the angles in Heaven.

May he rest in peace.
