Clear Creek

Memo to Self: The links on my "Favorites" list is not the same as the list of links to the left on the blogroll.

The link to the Monastery of Our Lady of the Annunciation of Clear Creek, Oklahoma is another of those which I have long thought was on my blogroll but isn't. Or "wasn't", as I have now added it. This is the only Benedictine foundation in the United States using the traditional liturgy. The only authorized one, anyway. It is a daughter foundation of Fontgombault in France, itself a foundation of Dom Gueranger's Solesmes Monastery.

Clear Creek Monastery was founded in the year 2000 with 12 monks. There are now 21 with 6 more waiting for admission. They will shortly be out of room.
