Br. Mark at Holy Face Monastery

     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!
