Assumption Abbey is perhaps best known for its fruitcakes. They sell out by Christmas each year, and this year monks made over 30,000. These days, monks from Vietnam do much of the work. Alphonse Le, a 29-year-old monk from Vietnam, had never tasted fruitcake before moving to Assumption Abbey in 2016.
