Our Srs. Harriet and Madeleine recently returned from the annual junior professed meeting at our monastery of the Holy Cross in Berryville, Virginia. Each year the junior professed monks and nuns of our order gather at one of our monasteries for a few weeks of classes and an opportunity to get to know each other and life at another monastery.
This year Fr. Michael Casey from our abbey in Australia was the teacher. Fr. Michael has written extensively about monastic life and spirituality. The main topic was community life in all of its aspects.
