I have offered to help lead part A with the postulants by email. I don't think I could get to Houston, but would be happy to work through the materials beforehand with them

Thanks for all the information

Pepper was working on a solution involving putting them through a character recognition thing, but so far we don't have them.  I'm going to try to see if Lori and Charles could send them in electronic form, and will send them along if so.  I believe the applications come with the support of the Emmaus Chapter... I wonder if Emmaus would like to provide a formal endorsement/approval, since you all know them?

At Evensong we celebrated Martha's admission as a Novice, using a similar rite to that we had for David and Michael at General Chapter.   I was happy to discover that all, including Paulette who was consulted by text, are willing to get together monthly to work on formation  material.  The next gathering is scheduled for September 22, which, as someone pointed out, is Frodo and Bilbo's birthday, and will be at Michael's house.  The plan is to rotate among postulants' houses.  The topic will be Unit A, on the Daily Office and Rhythms of Sacred Time.  As we discussed, it would be really good if professed Companions beside me could visit Houston and be with the Postulants and Novices there, leading some of the conversation and getting to know the new people.  Would anyone be able and willing to be in Houston on the 22nd next month?
