November 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 a brother's recent contributions to Cistercian Studies Quarterly, logging in our forest for Trappist Caskets, breakdowns of garden/orchard work vehicles, upcoming speakers about homelessness in the Dubuque area, and our need to discuss and approach another monastery of our Order to serve as our Father Immediate.

 

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.”
