Mount Saviour Monastery
On the eve of the Epiphany, the monks were received like kings
for high tea at the ladies' guesthouse by Maureen Cadley. Two weeks
later, during the Knitters' Retreat organised by Penny Allen, the monks joined the
participants for Sunday dinner. Br.
James spoke to the participants about the notion of Oblates that
are affiliated to a monastery. The group enjoyed the quiet
atmosphere and the sharing of knitting techniques. Fr. Martin attended the annual
meeting of Benedictine Abbots held in New Orleans. The Abbot Primate from Rome was
present. On January 25th, Br.
Stephen was hospitalized for a bleeding ulcer. The wound
was cauterized and he was back home two days later.
