Lights, Camera, Auction

Much work and care culminated once again in this summer’s Charity Auction set up beautifully in a large tent by the bay.  God was very good to send favorable weather, and many hands – young and old – were active in putting it on to raise money for the needy and for the arts.  Time, talents, gifts, money: they all make up parts of our lives and we collaborate with the Lord in making them useful.  So it’s good to celebrate what He’s doing in our midst by continuing what we’re doing as best we can.

About Faithful Friar

I am a 20+ year member of the Community of Jesus Brotherhood, so I live in the Friary with the other vowed brothers along with any novices or combination of guest/ resident men – young or old – who may be with us at any given time. Our vows are the same as any simple or solemnly professed Community member, with the addition of consecrated celibacy and poverty. I moved here shortly out of high school to study music for a summer. At the end of that summer I chose to stay here as a CJ member. Shortly thereafter I knew another change was needed, and asked to be accepted into the brotherhood first as a postulant, later as a novice. My life in the Brotherhood involves a variety of occupations, but they are centered on the continual service of prayer and praise in our church and on the outreach ministries springing from that service. This means manual labor as well as ongoing study and training: theological, musical, technical/ scientific, artistic, historical, philosophical, etc. Sometimes this involves teaching others, so that is part of our life too. It’s a life of poverty and yet full of hidden riches.
