At the Community Eucharist on July 11, the feast of St Benedict, Fr Joe clothed Dr Richard Fitzgerald with a black oblate robe to signify that he is an oblate of the Benedictine Abbey of St Vincent, Latrobe. Dr Fitzgerald will wear the robe when he joins the Mepkin Community for Office or Eucharist. Dr Fitzgerald who has been Mepkin’s physician for 12 years was joined at the celebration by his wife Eva, his friend David George and his godson Nathaniel.

Vocation Thought for the Day
“One thing I ask of the Lord, this I seek, to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life.” Inspiring but also challenging words if we really take them in.
