Mount Saviour Monastery

May 2006

Fr. Martin Shannon
 The Fourth Annual Damasus Winzen Memorial Lecture was held on Sunday 7 May 2006. 4 PM. by Fr Martin Shannon of the Community of Jesus, Orleans, Massachusetts.  He talked about the Transfiguretion which is our patronal feast.  Fr. Martin and Br. Joseph went to New York City for the oblate meeting.  On May 13th,  Some relatives and friends of Br. James Kelly were here for a month's mind mass.  On the 15th, Br. Stephen had a hernia surgery; he was back and on his feet, the same day.  On the 19th, the week-end retreat for the public was on the Eucharist.  The following week-end was very busy with the shearing of 180 sheep.  Many guests and friends were on hand to ease the task.  Our Dedication Day letter  will be mailed  later this month.

Coming Events:
From June 12th to the 25th, some 23 Junior Monks from Benedictine Monasteries in the USA and Mexico will be with us under the guidance of Fr. Cyprian Davis OSB of St Meinrad’s Arachabbey, lecturing in History and Fr. Kevin Seasoltz OSB of St John’s Abbey, lecturing in Liturgy.
