Welcoming a Confrere

      On May 3rd, our community welcomed Fr. Santhosh Arppathanath, one of our monks from St. Joseph Priory in India.  Fr. Santhosh has been a professed monk for over 19 years and was ordained to the priesthood in 2006.  Father earned three degrees in Makkyad before his ordination and later completed a religious formator's course in Rome.  He served as a teacher and bursar at two schools (Ben Hill in Iritty and Ben Garden in Asam).  With the approval of his Prior, Fr. Anselm Pallithazhath, Fr. Santhosh arrived here in the U.S. for an extended period of time to assist our community in growing in our monastic spirit and witness.  Fatherís help is an expression of the brotherly collaboration among our priories that has been part of the history of our Sylvesterine Benedictine Congregation.
