Br. Pierre PratteMount Saviour Monastery

August 2010
Br. Pierre
was featured in the August issue of the diocesan paper, Catholic Courier, after he gave a presentation in Rochester on Gregorian Chant at St. Salome Church, Irondequoit.   It was an occasion to reminisce the music that inspired many of the participants when they were younger.  A 3 minute video of excerpts of the presentation was made by a journalist of the Catholic Courier.  On August 6th, we celebrated our patronal feast, the Transfiguration, with solemnity.  We long for the transformation that the disciples witnessed in the company of Christ.  On the 15th, Our Dedication Day, the celebration was well attended and Clare Smock and friends gave a nice recital with many pieces for 2 pianos and violin.  The sheep operation is active since it is the time for weaning and the separation of the male and female lambs.  At the end of the month, we inspected all the ewes from head to toe to make sure that the are healthy and can cope with the winter conditions.  The garden is yielding good vegetables and Br. John is getting ready to harvest the apples.

Coming events:
Emmaus Experience IX: From Friday, Oct. 8th through Monday, Oct. 11th. focusing on Biblical texts that point to radically transformative meanings of discipleship, church and creation.  The facilitators will be Tony Bartlett, Ann  and John Hisle.
