In recent days, a person sends a message to monasteries usurping my identity with an email address that is not mine, to ask for reception facilities for friends from abroad who are looking for a vocation discernment or something of the same kind. This message is not from me, ignore it.

Unfortunately, this type of procedure is becoming more and more frequent and we must protect ourselves from it. I apologize for this inconvenience ; be sure of my fraternal prayer.

Thank you to those who warned me of this hijacking.

fr. Jean-Pierre Longeat
President of the Inter-Monastery Alliance (AIM)

  • A fraud circulating by e-mail

    Please pay the greatest attention to the text below, which concerns a new attempt at fraud circulating by e-mail, this time addressed to the Abbot of Poblet. It is obvious that this e-mail was not sent by Father Peter. Please be very careful with these messages/emails so as not to fall victim to this umpteenth swindle. In case of doubt, please contact the OCist General House.
