Mount Saviour Monastery

September 2015
The orchard is a busy place, this month.  We have an abundance of fruits and the apple crop might be a record breaker.  Br. Michael is in charge of the operation and coordinates the harvest.  Br. Justin and Br. Paul Mailloux were away for a home visit in the middle of the month.  Upon his return, Br. Paul became a novice and took the name BernardBr. John and Br. Pierre attended the General Chapter for the English Province of the Subiaco Cassinese Congregation.  For lack of space in the English monasteries, the meeting was held at St-Benoit sur Loire in France.  Seventeen monasteries of men and women were represented.  In advance, the participants had submitted a brief history and some highlights of their present situation.  Each day, there were discussions that lasted more than six hours each day.  It was an occasion to share ideas with members of the Congregation.  Br. John and Br. Pierre returned on Sept. 26th and landed in Philadelphia while  the Pope was there.
