It’s an exciting two weeks for Sister Lynn Marie and Novice Erma as they attend the Novice and Director Institute sponsored by the American Benedictine Formation Conference.
The annual event is hosted this year by Mount St. Scholastica in Atchison, Kan., so they didn’t have to travel very far. In fact, a large group of participants will visit our Clyde, Mo., monastery tomorrow, and we’re so excited to share our home and time with them for a few hours.
The Novice and Director Institute gives novices the opportunity to learn about the similarities and differences among various Benedictine communities, allows them to explore essential elements of the Rule of St. Benedict and receive support from fellow novices and feedback on monastic formation.
For directors, like Sister Lynn Marie, it allows them to share programs, resources, ideas and concerns and support their novices in the NADI experience.
This year’s theme is “Exploring Monastic Treasures,” so we look forward to hearing about all they’ve learned!
