Young Mill Hill Missionaries Meeting

From Sunday 7th September till Saturday 20th September 2014 the youngest generation of Mill Hill missionaries, ordained between 2006 and 2011, were gathered at Chigwell, Essex. Hailing from countries as diverse as India, Cameroon, Philippines, Kenya and Uganda, the areas of mission of the 22 participants were equally varied, ranging from the tribal areas in Sindh, Pakistan, to the townships of South Africa. In its own small way this conference symbolised how mission in the 21st century has truly become global and multi-directional.

  • Inaurguration of new chapel at Karunapuram, India

    Tuesday, 26th August, 2014

    The inauguration of our chapel at the Formation Centre at Karunapuram (India) was an occasion of great joy. The days of labor and hope had finally come to fruition. We had dreamed of it for years, to have our own proper space for liturgy and prayer. So no words could sufficiently capture our jubilation and satisfaction. ‘We finally have a chapel, and a beautiful one at that’ !!!. Such was our common unexpressed feeling.

  • Increasing Fragility of Communities in the Order of Cistercians


    There is a growing urgency about the question (of fragility) as communities become more aware of their increasing fragility and try to take steps to remedy it. Like it or not the topic is important not only for the communities who have immediate experience of this increasing fragility but also for those communities who will be affected by it: the Father Immediate of the fragile community as well as its daughter houses. I noted that among the 48 older houses of the Order (where most of the fragility is present) are found the mother houses of 83 other houses of monks and 54 houses of nuns. This means that the support that a daughter house might need (in terms of pastoral care, formation, people or economically) may be put at risk.

  • Muslim scholars denounce IS


    More than 120 Muslim scholars from around the world joined an open letter to the “fighters and followers” of the Islamic State, denouncing them as un-Islamic by using the most Islamic of terms.

    Relying heavily on the Quran, the 18-page letter released Wednesday (Sept. 24) picks apart the extremist ideology of the militants who have left a wake of brutal death and destruction in their bid to establish a transnational Islamic state in Iraq and Syria.
