Brother Alban Thomas Herberger was a Monk at the Abbey of Gethsemani for 56 years. Having entered the Order at the age of 15, Alban lived a life devoted to God replete with humor, kindness and wit. He worked as the Abbey's Farm Manager until he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1976, later serving as the Abbey's Front Desk attendant and greeter. He was beloved by his extensive family, highly regarded by his local Community, and well respected by his fellow Monks and Priests. Alban died on September 20, 2006, but through those he affected in his daily encounters, his spirit lives on.
