Rev. Canon Joseph AsselinMy discovery of the SSJE Monastery has been one of the most important blessings of my life and ministry. My visits on retreat, the counsel and care of the brothers in direction and my time in worship in the chapel have rooted me in Christ’s abiding love. My retreats so nourish and strengthen me that both my parishioners and my family encourage me to go whenever it’s obvious that I “need to go”. Combined with my retreats, being in fellowship with the community through FSJ sustains me and I’m a frequent visitor to the SSJE web site for all of the inspiring sermons. Thanks be to God for this life sustaining ministry and thank you for including me in your extended community.
