Summer at the Kartause

For most Franciscan University students, time at the Kartause Maria Thronus Iesu is a beautiful but all too brief season in their walk through life. As alumni they may journey back to visit the Austrian Alps foothills and the little town of Gaming from time to time, but they’re accompanied by the knowledge that the leaves have fallen from the trees, spring has come and gone, and their Austria semester has passed.
