Fr. Thomas Vadakara, one of our two monks working in the monastery of Mambre, Kinshasa, Congo, arrived for holidays on March 6. He was here till the 11th of July, the Feast of St. Benedict. Before he left, he was requested to share with the community relevant information about the community of Mambre and its affairs. During the last days of his stay here he also did a lot of shopping for the community at Kinshasa.
