On October 28, Fr. Luke Kot, at age 102 one of the seniors of the whole Order, celebrates the 75th anniversary of his entrance into monastic life. At Mass, he received a special staff.
Fr. Luke entered Gethsemani Abbey in 1938. In 1944 he left as one of the founders of the new community in Conyers, GA, Our Lady of the Holy Ghost (now, Holy Spirit). He served the community for many years as tailor and in our Visitors' Center. He continues to make finger rosaries.
