Monk Monastery

Monk Monastery

70 years ago the Trappist monk monastery ‘Abbey of Our Lady of the Holy Trinity’ sprang up in Huntsville, Utah

30 years ago I was inspired by a University of Utah film called ‘Monastery’ while in film school.  Never met the filmmaker though.

2 years ago the monastery was up for sale, only a handful of monks remained. Then my friend ‘Wynstonn’ shows up a few months ago with another friend and buys it to preserve the land. 

Through Facebook I met filmmaker Steve Peterson, Director of ‘Monastery’ and we drove to the monastery. He met Wynstonn & Steve showed his film to the 1 remaining Monk that was in his film. 

A Chinese expression, ‘no coincidence, no story.’
