December 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 logistics for the celebration of the Solemnity of the Lord's Nativity including a "Christmas tree harvest" for decorating our church and other common areas in the monastery, an update on vocation activities including the 2017 "Come Away" retreat dates as well as continued development of a new "Contemplative Experience" summer program, the 2017 capital expense request process, and some news from a few other monasteries of our Order in the United States.

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.”
