Aug 23 - A New Organist

For many years two of our brothers have given their musical talents to us as organists at our liturgies. A third brother has been taking organ lessons and today he made his debut at the mid-afternoon Office of None. He will provide our organ accompaniment at this hour on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. The rotation of our organists will be adjusted from time to time as his repertoire grows and the needs of the community continue to evolve.

C. 16 - Active Participation of the Brothers

1 - The brothers have the right and duty to participate fully in the common life, although this participation can be exercised in different ways.
