Mount Saviour Monastery

June 2017
It was a busy, celebratory month, full of feast days, solemnities, and birthdays beginning on the 1st when we celebrated Br. Justin’s name day followed by Pentecost (4th) Corpus Christi (15th) Fr. James’ 90th birthday (19th) Sacred Heart (23rd) Birth of John the Baptist (24th) Sts. Peter & Paul (29th) which is Br. Pierre’s name day, finally culminating at the end of the month on the 30th with a welcoming celebration for Fr. Darr Schoenhofen who will begin sharing Chaplain duties with Fr. Don Curtiss. On the Solemnity of Pentecost, somewhat appropriately yet unexpectedly, it was cool enough after Mass to see our breath (Spirit). A celestial delight had appeared before Mass; an intense half hour long rainbow and at one point, full double rainbow. On the 8th the community went en masse to Rochester for the combined 90th birthday celebration of Fr. James and Br. Stephen at the Sisters of St. Joseph Motherhouse. Pictures from the event can be viewed under Community, Photos Today on our website. Our appearance and celebration took our brothers by surprise as even the Sisters were astonished they could keep the planned event a secret. Our newly nonagenarian brothers were joyful and in great spirits and continue to do well and to be well cared for.

July 15 Brother Michael O' Connor will make his solemn profession before Abbot Cuthbert Brogan and the monastic community at Mass which will be at 9AM.  A reception will follow.
