Brother Pierre was born in Detroit, Michigan and entered the Abbey of Gethsemani in 1952. He was sent on Gethsemani's fifth foundation here at Vina and arrived with the first contingent of 26 monks on July 2, 1955, a fact that he was always proud of. Brother was jack of all trades but held the position of welder and mechanic for over 30 years maintaining our fleet of trucks, cars tractors and farm equipment. Brother loved his independence but he embraced death in true monastic spirit surrounded by the care and support of his brothers. The Lord called him home on the evening of May 5, 2019.
