From the Priory’s autumn 2017 newsletter:

Br. David Bryan writes: Holy Cross monastic life continues to attract and to welcome new brothers. There are 3 brothers in temporary vows, 2 novices and 2 postulants. We are frequently asked why we chose to join a monastic order; why Holy Cross; and why we stay in community. Each brother responds in his own way. I shall tell my story.

From the Priory’s Christmas 2016 newsletter:

“If each season of the church year is marked by a dominant mood, then the prevailing tone of Advent is one of hope and expectation. Indeed, to borrow from Dickens, we may say that Advent is a time of Great Expectations. But what exactly is hope? And what is it that we are expecting? And what grounds do we have for such a stance, given the current state of our world and the condition of our own souls?” — Br. Robert Leo Sevensky OHC, Superior of the order
