Once a Johnnie, always a Johnnie
Br. Lew Grobe
What is a monastic calling?  How does a guy go from being a student at Saint John's to becoming a member of the monastic community?  When Br. Lew Grobe became a monk of Saint John's Abbey, a college friend of his remarked that he was taking the "Once a Johnnie, always a Johnnie" tagline a bit too seriously.  He recently made Collegeville his permanent home, but the road back to Saint John's wasn't always clear.  In this presentation, Br. Lew will share how the idea of becoming a Benedictine got into his head and why he decided to act on it.
