The current Brothers in Formation and several formators from all three U.S. Districts gathered at the Fogelman Center in Memphis to hear talks on obedience and stability from Brother Michael French. Attendees also had time for reflection and to socialize. One of the many highlights of the weekend was the Founder’s Day Mass and luncheon at Christian Brothers High School. Several Brothers from Memphis as well as those from other Districts were able to join. Brother Felix Joseph, Secretary of Formation for the Institute in Rome was also in attendance.
During the weekend, current postulant, Rafael Rodriguez, renewed his promises as did the five novices. All Brothers present also renewed their vows. Brother Larry Schatz, Visitor of the Midwest District, addressed the group and a Mass was celebrated by Msgr. John MacArthur, AFSC.
