Benedictines: February 2010 Archives

St Benedict Clear Creek.jpegYesterday was the feast of Saint Scholastica, the twin sister of Saint Benedict but today Father Abbot Antoine of the Abbey Our Lady of Fontgombault announced that Our Lady of the Annunciation of Clear Creek Monastery is now an abbey.

Dom Philip Anderson was named the first abbot of Clear Creek by the Abbot of Fontgombault, Dom Antoine Forgeot. Dom Francis Bethel the long-time guestmaster was named prior and Dom Mark Bachmann, subprior.

Pray for Abbot Philip and for the monks of the Clear Creek Abbey!

The Abbey of Our Lady of Fontgombault, France (1948) is a foundation of the Abbey of Saint Peter, Solesmes (revived in 1833).

Saints Benedict and Scholastica, pray for us.

Monks and MBAs mix

This morning in my inbox I found a fine human interest story on a relationship being built between a colony of Benedictine monks and academics and students of business from a Jesuit university. The key to this whole story is mutual understanding and respect for the other and lived culture, that is genuine friendship. In this case, the monks of Conception Abbey and Rockhurst University School of Management's professors and students. Read the story... Pray for each group.
