Saint Meinrad Archabbey

A catholic monastery devoted to the teachings of St. Benedict

June 21-27, 2017

A brief update from this past week…

Father Abbot Kurt, Father Prior John, Fathers Justin and Adrian, and Brother John Mark traveled to Conception Abbey this week for the General Chapter of our congregation.

The One Bread, One Cup interns had some down time last week and also some formation as part of their summer internship at Saint Meinrad. The second conference of One Bread, One Cup started this Monday, June 26.

Father Subprior Guerric blessed Mrs. Janis Dopp as oblate director, as she began her work as our first lay oblate director, on Thursday, and Father Meinrad gave a farewell address.

We celebrated the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart on Friday. Father Subprior Guerric presided at our Eucharist and Office in the Prior's place, since Father Prior John was attending the meeting of the General Chapter. Likewise, he was hebdomadarian at our Eucharist and Office on Saturday for the Solemnity of the Birth of John the Baptist.​
