John Frambes, OFM, of Wilmington, Del., is initiating a process to transfer to the Order of Cistercians of the Strict Observance (Trappists). With the consent of the Order of Friars Minor and the Trappists, this will entail a three-year period of discernment before making his profession of the Rule of St. Benedict. He plans on moving to Mepkin Abbey, Moncks Corner, S.C., sometime in the spring.
