Back in action

.... Well, it's been some time since i've written on this piece of internet communication... I suppose I should fill you in the happenings of the Monastery.  Two of our brothers endured and survived their Comprehensive Exams for the M. Div at the seminary.  It's an exam that consists of 4 written exams and one oral exam in a particular concentration  -- Systematic Theology, Moral Theology, Pastoral Theology, or Sacred Scripture....

In other news, we had a visit of Fr. Eugene Costa, Fr. Oscar Kozyra and Br. Matthew Levis over the course of the January.  They came  and visited us for a brief period.  But it was good to see them all and to hear how our brothers at the other friaries are doing.  Fr Eugene was here to enjoy our community celebration of the 10th Anniversary of Br. James' 30th Birthday.  We all had a great time at a small Chinese restaurant in Philadelphia's China town.

The parish is preparing for the Patronal and Titular Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes.  There will be a Solemn High Mass offered.... and it is all very exciting.

Stay tuned for more updates....

God Bless.
Pray for the captives.
