I am a Benedictine monk at St. Gregory's Abbey in Three Rivers, Michigan. Although most Benedictine monasteries are in the Roman Catholic Church, our monastery is in the Episcopal Church. It happens that at the present time, I am the abbot of the community, which means the community runs me more than I run it. I have also worked in our vegetable garden and served as guest master. As a lover of books, I am in charge of the abbey's library. Other favorite hobbies include the study of music and writing fantasy stories.
