Br. Cassian is a Vanderbilt graduate of 2002 and a monk of St. Louis Abbey. He has been generous in abandoning the refuge of his monastic enclosure for the good of souls at a number of Vandy Awakening retreats. I am not sure if I can think of a religious event less conducive to monastic recollection than an Awakening retreat, but Br. Cassian is "all in" when he comes! Pray for him on the day of his Solemn Profession.
The Abbey runs the Priory School in St. Louis. A number of our finest Vandy+Catholic gentlemen are alums, including Br. Cassian himself.
