Along with our Easter greetings, we must unfortunately let you know that, on account of the situation that has arisen because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be able this year to hold the Course of Monastic Formation scheduled from August 31 to September 26, 2020.

It is in fact too uncertain if all the students will manage to participate, especially those coming from other continents, and also it would not be prudent to gather so many people for a month without the ability to respect the necessary distance.

God willing, we will meet again in 2021, from August 30 to September 25, with the same program that we had planned for this year. May we accept this circumstance as a chance to deepen our understanding of the courses we have already received and to complete the assignments with greater care. Let us pray for each other, with the expectation of seeing each other again with greater joy in 2021. In the risen Christ, our true Master,

Fr. Mauro-Giuseppe Lepori OCist, Abbot General, Moderator of the MFC
