Monks in Mexico
The Abbot Visitor of the English Province of our Subiaco -Cassinese Congregation is Abbot Anselm Atkinson of the Abbey of Pluscarden. Because our English Province so geographically spread (including Mexico, the USA and Ghana) the Visitor and his Council appointed our Father Abbot as Vicar, with responsibility for the Mexican monasteries and Christ in the Desert in the US and its foundations. Abbot Cuthbert carried out Canonical Visitations in the Mexican monasteries in July and made fraternal visits to our houses of nuns in that part of the world.
The name ‘Cuthbert’ is a little challenging to the Latin American tongue.
After the Visitation of the Monastery of La Soledad, Father Abbot carried out the Visitation of Xalapa in Vera Cruz. At Xalapa the community celebrated a solemn and a simple profession while Abbot Cuthbert was there.
