Novice Master and his students

Novice Master Father Benedict Giving Class to New Brothers

Almost every day our brothers in formation, that is, observers, postulants and novices, have “formation classes.” The Classes cover a range of topics including Sacred Scripture, especially the Book of Psalms, the Holy Rule of Saint Benedict, Monastic History, Liturgy, and the Constitutions of our Subiaco Cassinese Congregation. Several of the senior monks give the formation classes.

The Junior professed (monks in simple vows) also have classes, including those online from St. Joseph’s College of Maine. These classes cover philosophy and theology subjects. Pray for our young monks, who are eager students in the Lord’s service.
