St. Joseph's Abbey - (St. Benedict) Louisiana

Click on the thumbnail for a larger picture.

I began this gallery in the spring of 2005 when all the new foliage was sprouting on the trees.
The older, wooden structures shown here were built in the late 1800's and early 1900's and were used when the Abbey was a working farm.
There is much beauty and feeling of spirituality on the grounds of the Abbey and one can find serenity while visiting.
