August 17 On this day in 1896, monks of the Archabbey kicked off a three-day celebration marking the Golden Jubilee of the founding of the Benedictine Order in the United States. The celebration was limited to the monks due to the fact that the Archabbey Basilica, which was under construction at the time, was not yet completed.
