On Tuesday, April
21st, our Br. Mark Orcutt set off on a journey to
Holy Face Monastery in Clifton, New Jersey.
Brother will spend at least six months at the other
monastery of our Priory to assist our confreres in
their various ministries, but especially to help
them in developing their own Oblate program.
Unlike other monastic communities, we take a vow of
stability in the monastic life, not to a particular
monastery, but to the Priory which in our case
consists of St. Benedict Monastery and Holy Face
Monastery. So, it is not uncommon for
monasteries in our Congregation to support each
other in this way. Please pray for Br Mark,
that the Lord will bless his efforts at Holy Face
and that all the monks of the American Priory will
continue to grow in the vocation the Lord has
blessed us with!
