WCCM: 20 year anniversary

In 1991 at New Harmony Inn in Indiana, a series of intense discussions scheduled around the wonderful talks by Fr Bede, led to the formation of the WCCM. At the time I don’t think anyone really knew what it meant for the Community into the future. Hope was generated by this new way of being community, but it was also tempered by the unspoken pain arising from the closure of the Montreal community as well as the many practical issues such a new structure needed to address to support itself. What was not in doubt was our faith in the teaching, our faith in the practice of silence and our deep faith in the presence of the Holy Spirit, within ourselves and in the Community.
