Community News:

We have two new appointments to important positions in our community.  It’s kind of exciting because it doesn’t happen much around here!

Br. Todd has been appointed as Assistant Novice Director to Fr. Casey.  He now participates in all of the novicate prayer life, which is considerable.  It’s a challenge to be put back into the novicate after all these years.  I asked him what he thought so far and he replied, “Just show up.”  How profound is that!  Please keep our Br. Todd in your prayers.

Br. Chris has been appointed as the new director of our Monastic Life Retreat program.  Our program will seek to incorporate even more of the prayer and work inherent in our monastic life.  With the hope that the retreatants will truly experience God’s presence in their life, in our community, in the Church, and in the world.  Though profoundly unworthy, Br. Chris labors on counting on your prayers and God’s grace for the success of this program.

That’s all for now.

Br. CB
