board & governance.


As an apostolate of the parish of St. John the Evangelist, The Holy House of Our Lady and St. John is presided over by Fr. Robert-Charles Bengry GSmp, the Parish Priest of St. John’s, through the Gilbertine Institute of Catholic Studies. The Parish Priest is the administrator and final adjudicator of all matters pertaining to Holy House. The Gilbertine Institute exists to support and direct the Holy House apostolate. Particular members of the Gilbertine Institute comprise the Board of the Holy House of Our Lady & St. John. The Board assists and supports the Parish Priest in the formulation of policy and administration of Holy House in accordance with its mission. The day to day operations of Holy House are administered by the Programme Director, Mr. Troy Lamoureux, who acts under the authority of the Parish Priest.

To change the figure, the seeds are good but the cultural soil has been depleted; the seminal ideas of Plato, Aristotle, St. Augustine and St. Thomas thrive only in an imaginative ground saturated with fables, fairy tales, stories, rhymes, and adventures: the thousand books of Grimm, Anderson, Stevenson, Dickens, Scott, Dumas and the rest.
