Each October we brothers have a work weekend at Emery House where we invite others to help us put the gardens “to bed” for the winter as well as other housekeeping and repair work. Due to the global pandemic we are unable to invite the help we need in this annual undertaking.Therefore many of the brothers will be at Emery House this weekend to make facilitate these preparations.

We will not be live-streaming Evensong Friday (10/9) through Monday (10/12).  We will resume our live-streaming on Tuesday, October 13th at 6 pm. Please know of our prayers for you as we work this weekend. Visit the Friends of SSJE Facebook page to enjoy our past live-streams of Evensong both at the Monastery and Emery House.

God’s invitation remains the same: Just rest. It’s so simple and so transformative. The radical practice of rest can help us to recognize in ourselves the very patterns of effort that consume our energy and our lives. It can help us to let go of these useless strategies and this relentless striving. Rest takes us to the lip of the well, and helps us to fall into God’s generous grace.

At this time when our lives are upended, consider reclaiming “rest” as an essential practice. Br. Nicholas Bartoli invites us to fall into God’s generous grace >
