"To send them out two by two..."

Thursday, September 01, 2011
Wednesday night was a bit of a "curate's egg" for the community at Oxford. Two of our brothers, Fr. Vivian Boland and Br. Lawrence Lew, were packing up for pastures new. Fr. Vivian, the Master of Students, has been appointed The Master of the Order's Socius for the region of North-West Europe and Canada and Socius for Initial Formation and is moving to Rome. Br. Lawrence is moving to the Priory of St. Albert the Great, Edinburgh, where he will be joining the Catholic Chaplaincy team.  He will return to Oxford to be ordained to the priesthood later this month.

Their departures are of special significance to Godzdogz. They are the last remaining friars who have been with this blog since its inauguration. Fr. Vivian has been the dedicated editor since the beginning, and Br. Lawrence has used his considerable talent to build up and drive the blog. Please keep these brothers and their work in your prayers.
