January Information Forum

This morning we gathered for our monthly Information Forum to share news about personal items and the goings-on within the monastery, the region, and the Order.  This month’s information included the arrival of scaffolding for use in the repair of our church ceiling, proposed updates to our 50 year old kitchen layout and appliances, upcoming ongoing formation presenters to the community, considerations for improving our land stewardship, coordination of Trappist Caskets advertising consistent with our life, as well as an update on the loose change (26 cents) collected in the laundry. Fr. Mark is attending a seminar in Rome so updates on the region and the Order were not available.

About Information Forum

The purpose of the Information Forum is to provide an opportunity for brothers publicly to give information or news about themselves or their departments and areas of responsibility that will be of interest to the community or important for the brothers to know.

The Information Forum is a response to:

Constitution 16 of the Order, “Active Participation of the Brothers: the brothers are called to mutual care, mutual co-operation, and mutual obedience. … The abbot and the officials are to communicate to the brothers what concerns all and readily accept their desires and suggestions” (16.2,4).

Priority One of the Transition Process 2012: “Whatever we do, we need to do it together in the community as a whole.”
