Monastery of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross - Chevetogne Belgium

These photos I took on my annual breaks at the Benedictine Monastery of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross in Chevetogne Belgium. Though this is a monastery in communion with the Roman Catholic Church, it is rather unique since part of the community is Byzantine Rite while the rest of the community is Latin Rite

Chevetogne - August 1, 2015

Though I spent almost a week here at this monastery, I unfortunately contracted food poisoning during a trip to Flanders that had me severely ill for most of the stay. I was able to spend at least one day photographing before that nasty episode. As you can see the restoration work is still ongoing.
