In Amity, Oregon, USA, in the Monastery of Our Lady of Compassion, the only contemplative Brigittine monastery of men in the world which was successfully established in  1976 on US soil, after all efforts failed to re-establish a community for male Brigittines of whom after the ravages of the Protestant reformation none were left.

Th Brigittini Servitores couldn’t be there for this, but we (Superior and Chaplain) were there in July, celebrating the Feast of Saint Birgitta and participating  for a few days in the community life of the Brigittine Brothers, our dear comrades in arms. May God bless them all!Amity2016-01
