Jesus Abbey’s North American “Chuseok” Homecoming
September 25 to 27, 2015
Celebrating 50 years of God’s blessings

Special for the Korean Diaspora!!!

Come and celebrate with us!

If you think of Jesus Abbey as your spiritual home, we encourage you to come “home” for Chuseok and celebrate 50 years of God’s blessings on the Abbey community. This will be a wonderful time to meet with others in the Abbey “family” from around the U.S. and Canada and to pray together at a very special location.

Of course, ALL are welcome whether you have ever been to the Abbey or not.
