In Exitu: Moving Day!

Moving to A More Suitable House

Dear readers, please bear with me during the next few days. I will be about my Father's business: that is to say that I will be moving the Cenacle to a new house that we will be leasing here in Tulsa. The new house is spacious and very suitable to an "embryonic" monastic life and to a more generous monastic hospitality. There is a large light-filled room on the first floor that will serve as the oratory. Another room will serve as a parlour for spiritual direction. The kitchen is roomy, as is the future refectory. There are four bedrooms that will become monastic cells, and a lovely big room that will serve as our library and chapter. In addition, there are two long sunlit rooms that will become the office and sacristy.

For the Glory of the Father and the Sanctification of Priests

Stalwart helpers are arriving today with trucks to move all the larger pieces of furniture and to transfer the oratory and all its sacred contents to the new house. I ask for your prayers, that this relocation may serve to magnify the glory of the Father that shines on the Eucharistic Face of Christ, and foster the growth of our calling to work for the sanctification of priests.


Fr. Mark,

Courage for the move. May you be settled in quickly and may the community flourish. Thank you for the Prayer for All Circumstances.


All my best wishes. Do let us know the new address (esp. so I can amend that post I did for you). God bless!

We pray for your move to a new home and for your health and strength to carry His will to completion.

Will continue to pray for every blessing as the Cenacle moves. The Novena has been an excellent way of stirring up imaginative prayer for the great work and for protection, peace and perseverance as the inevitable challenges appear. I believe the Lord's kindness will be evident each step of the way as He deeply lays the foundations of the new house so that you will not become discouraged; your talent for seeing with the eyes of the Spirit will make these encouragements plain even as the spade bites deeply so that the walls can rise high, with 'battlements of rubies and pearls'.

Keep Still Waters Farm informed of new address so that 'care packages' can come at appropriate intervals!

Blessings on the move. I guess that means I will have to visit again!
