The Monastery Celebrates its Annual Retreat
Brother Michael Stomber, C.P. is Assigned to Immaculate Conception
From one Jamaica to the other. Brother Michael Stomber, C.P. arrived here at the Senior Care Facility on February 15th after working and ministering for many years in our Mission in Jamaica, West Indies. Brother is from Gardner, Mass. He took his Vows as a Passionist Religious Brother in Pittsburgh, PA on August 16, 1951.
Brother is an accomplished artist and built play apparatus in some parks in Jamaica, for the children to play on.
The Community gathered in the Monastery Library, which was decorated for the occasion. Most members were for the Philadelphia Eagles and a few were cheering for the New England Patriots. Father Theophane Cooney won the Half Time prize in the pool and Father Joe Jones (The only Community member from Philadelphia) won the final prize.
From Monday, February 5th to Friday, February 9th, the members of the Monastery Community celebrated their Annual Retreat. Our Retreat Master was Father Michael Higgins, C.P. the former Provincial from the Western Province (Holy Cross). Father gave an excellent Retreat centering on our journey through religious life. The Retreat ended with the Renewal of our Vows.
