On October 17th and 18th the International Council of AIM (Alliance for International Monasticism) and the AIM USA Board of Trustees and guests met at Mount Saint Benedict Monastery in Erie, Pennsylvania. The Benedictine Sisters of Erie have sponsored the US Secretariat of AIM since 1990 but this is the first time the International Council has held its meeting here. Sister Christine Vladimiroff, O.S.B., prioress of the Erie community is pictured introducing the board.
Pictured to the left, is Sister Jacinta Conklin,O.S.B. and Sr.Dr. Aquinata Bockmann, O.S.B. both who were in attendance at this historic meeting.
AIM USA provides assistance to monasteries in developing countries while in turn we are enriched by the cultural diversity and global vision in living the Rule of Benedict.
There is so much I could write about this wonderful, life giving organization. I ask that you visit there web site and get involved...make a difference in the world.
God Bless. Sister John Paul, O.S.B.
