Welcome to the Society of Saint John the Evangelist

Why SSJE: The Rev. Charles LaFond

CharlesLaFondThe Monastery was an incubator for who I am now.  It gave birth to who I am now, the priest I always wanted to become.  I will be forever grateful to the Monastery, which is why I have left part of my estate in the hands of the Monastery: because I want them to do that for other people, other Brothers and also other people who passing through the Monastery without wearing a habit.  It’s like when you drop a mercury thermometer on the floor: all these balls of mercury roll out, and whenever you touch one, it becomes three more that go out in all directions. That’s what happens at the Monastery: people come to SSJE to figure out what is true and what is not, then they go out and make more of what is true.
