The Rev. Canon Charles LaFond on Monastic Life

Our visitor today was one of the Bishop's canons, who presided at the Eucharist and preached.

After the service Canon LaFond participated in our Lenten book study. We are reading Monk Habits for Everyday People, about implementing monastic life rule into our daily lives. And our visitor was a monk who lived in a monastery for three years, and from him we gained all sorts of insights into the real life and habits and spirituality of monks.
