The current issue of the Arlington Catholic Herald, the weekly newspaper of the Diocese of Arlington, is featuring a cover article on Holy Cross Abbey. The 7/11/12 article by correspondent Gretchen R. Crowe is entitled “In Search of God, Monks” and is available both in print and on-line.
The title succinctly suggests the double orientation of our life here at this moment: perpetuating our timeless search for God and our timely openness to new ways of attracting new members. The article also outlines our communal efforts to respond to our current challenges and the work of Kurt Aschermann who is one of the people helping us to achieve our goals (you probably recognize Kurt’s name from his posts on this column).
We are grateful to the Catholic Herald for helping us reach out to all those potential vocations within the scope of their readership and to all those capable of supporting the men who consider this vocation.
