March 4: The Clothing of a Novice

February 26, 2018

God willing, on Sunday, 4 March at 4 PM we will Clothe Sean Glenn as a Novice in our community in the context of Evening Prayer. This is a significant event in the life of a Brother and for the Community. Our Rule of Life reminds us that the novitiate is a time of progressive initiation into the life of the community. Novices are putting their vocation to the test of experience. We rejoice that Sean is taking this next step in this path of conversion of life. Please remember Sean in your prayers, and join us for his Clothing. Please also continue to pray for the gift of vocations to our community.

About the Daily Office


The Brothers’ worship schedule, what has traditionally been called the “Daily Office,” is described in the SSJE Rule of Life as:

“...a sustained act of union with Christ by which we participate in his unceasing offering of love to the Father. In reciting the psalms, singing canticles and hymns, proclaiming the divine word in Scripture, or lifting our voices in prayer, we are to enter more and more into the mind, heart, and will of Christ, and to be borne up by the Spirit in him to the Father.

"Our praying of the psalter, which is the heart of the Daily Office, takes us ever deeper into the mystery of the incarnation; the psalms give voice to the whole range of human experience which Christ has embraced and redeemed as the Savior of the world. As we sing and chant deep levels of our being are involved; our hearts are lifted up in greater exultation. And music enhances our worship with riches inherited from many ages.”
