Br. Efrain will be returning home to the Abbey from the Formators’ Program in Italy on Friday, 15 June. The second half of the Program was held in Assisi. The high-powered series of lectures from notable scholars continue and Br. Efrain continues to lap it all up. Although the Abbot gave him the option of spending some extra time in Italy, our brother is opting to return home once the program is done. If it’s good for him to get back home, it will be good for us to have him back. It’s not the lack of personnel, it’s the lack of his personality in this community that’s really missed.
