Nice weekend

Chris, Phil and Jason spent a great weekend, from Friday night to Sunday Lunch, with our brothers in New Norcia.

We spent our time eating, resting, going to the Liturgy of the Hours, raiding the monastic library and studying the rule of St Benedict.

Particularly this visit, we spent a a few hours with one of the monks discussing finding balance in our lives, focusing on who we truly are - not the image created by our profession.

We used an excellent resource designed by the Good Samaritan sisters for their oblates.

Thats all for now!
