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.
