Timothy Weaver is the newest postulant at the Abbey of Gethsemani.




Please join us in welcoming Timothy Weaver into the community of Gethsemani. Hailing from Ohio, Timothy entered as a postulant on Dec. 8.

As a postulant, Timothy will join Br. Godric and Fr. Jean De Dieu in the novitate for classes and work assignments.

After the six-month postulancy, Timothy can request to be accepted as a novice. At that point, he will take a monastic name and habit, be addressed as "Brother" and begin taking on liturgical duties.

Please join your prayers to ours for Timothy as he discerns God's call.
