December 2017
A new face to start a new month. Br. Isaiah Dwyer, a solemnly professed Missionary of Charity brother on leave of absence, arrived on the 2nd to discern a possible monastic vocation with the community. He began his journey as the community began its own journey through a new church year with the season of Advent. On the 3rd, Br. Justin received word that his younger brother, Leonard, had died in Sierra Leone while helping villages to build irrigation systems. On the 6th , Fr. Darr Schoenhofen moved out of St. James in order to begin his new assignment with the Syracuse Diocese in a parish in Binghamton. Brothers John and Luke accompanied Br. Stephen to the oncologist on the 7th where he decided to allow his esophageal cancer to take its course, declining radiation and chemotherapy. Please keep all of the preceding individuals in prayer. On the 8th, Br. John and the formation team, Brothers Isaiah and Mark, took advantage of the solemn feast day, to partake in an outing to explore our local Corning Museum of Glass before the special Tiffany glass exhibit ended. Br. Antonio, far from his native country of Mexico, was nevertheless able to attend a special Mass and celebration in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe about an hour's drive away on the 12th. Br. Gabriel was the representative for the community at the New York City Oblate meeting on the 14th. New members are welcome. We also received an early Christmas gift from Br. Bruno's busy bees with the arrival of 990 lbs. of honey that was extracted from the bee hives this year. On the 19th, Br. Dominic Savio returned from seminary for his winter school break but not a break from winter weather. For the Nativity we had just enough snow to be able to call it a white Christmas before we proceeded to go into a deep freeze for the remainder of the month. Br. Antonio escaped the freeze as he left for a home visit to Mexico on the 26th which is the same day the Servants of the Word group from Michigan arrived for their traditional year end weekly visit with us.
