Third group at the Monastery Community in Chicago

02/09/2008: United States

Mid-July saw the arrival of the third Ad Gentes group at the Monastery Community in Chicago. Brother Jose Contreras, director of the Ad Gentes group and Brother Kevin Moran, director of the Monastery community joined in welcoming the ten brothers from Spain, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, and Italy. In addition to the Monastery community the Beverly and Blue Island communities have hosted the Ad Gentes brothers and look forward continued sharing throughout their stay in Chicago.

On August 15 the Chicago area communities gathered to celebrate the Feast of the Assumption. At that gathering Brother Luis Sobrado, Vicar General, thanked Brother Kevin and the Monastery community for welcoming all the Ad Gentes groups to Chicago. He also thanked Brother Rick Carey for coordinating the Ad Gentes Brothers’ involvement in the life of Marist High School.
