On Saturday July 10 2021, Dr. Kevin Lacourse was received into the novitiate and was clothed in the monastic habit. Abbot Mark gave him his religious name, Brother Thomas. Brother Thomas’ patron is Saint Thomas More, the English saint and martyr. Brother Thomas is a native of Chester, New Hampshire. Father Bernard Disco, O.S.B. will serve as his Novice Master. Please pray for Brother Thomas as he begins this year of formation. Please continue to pray that our community will be blessed with new vocations.
