Father Augustine’s “Father/Son Series” Kicks Off with an Introduction to Monasticism
Father Augustine, Priory School Chaplain, invites all fathers and sons to join him Thursday, Sept. 22, 7-8:15 p.m. in the Dining Hall for an Introduction to Monasticism. The first in his special father/son series for 2016-17, this session will include a brief history of monasticism and the English Benedictine Congregation, a survey of monastic spirituality, a whirlwind tour of the monastery, and an opportunity to pray Compline (night prayer) with the monks of Saint Louis Abbey. Father Augustine extends a special invitation to Form I fathers and sons, as this is a great lesson on “Monk 101.” All are encouraged to attend. No reservation is necessary, and we hope many can join Father Augustine for this fun, informative evening.
