Brother Joel Blaize
Brother Joel is continuing his studies in the seminary. He has been studying theology while finishing up his philosophy degree. He continues his work in the music office at St. Meinrad.
A note from Br. Joel:
“I had a very nice time attending the International Benedictine Congress for monks in simple vows from June 22 to July 6 in Rome. About 30 young monks from around the world took part in the congress, & we toured many places in Rome & elsewhere in Italy. St. Meinrad's very own Br. John Mark Falkenhain presented conferences on living a healthy celibate life. Since my time at Rome, I've been at the Abbey of Einsiedeln in Switzerland, the monastery that founded St. Meinrad Archabbey. I've visited many historical places, churches, and Benedictine sites here in Switzerland, & before I return home on August 22, I hope to continue to study the musical tradition at Einsiedeln, as well as visit England. Next semester, I will be a part time student in the school of theology, and I will continue my work in the music office and with St. Meinrad's oblate program."
Please continue to pray for Brother Joel as he continues his journey. His address is:
