Morning Conference

 

Following Meditation and Prayer Time each morning, the Brothers hold a Morning Conference (in the Refectory) where they discuss policy issues, upcoming engagements (such as Parish Visits for example) and allocate the shared activities for the day. On any particular Saint's Day, the reading of the life of that saint is part of the Morning Conference.

Each Brother is responsible for certain areas of the community life. Decision-making is by consensus.

Activities may include such things as:
