OMAHA, Nebraska, OCT. 5, 2010 ( Archbishop George Lucas of Omaha accepted the resignation of Mother Nadine Brown, founder and general director of the Association of the Hermit Intercessors of the Lamb.

A communiqué from the Omaha Archdiocese reported Monday that the archbishop appointed Father George Baxter as trustee for the governance of the association.

Mother Brown founded the Intercessors of the Lamb as a contemplative, intercessory, and mixed (laymen, women, and clerics) association of hermits.

In May, the prelate initiated a canonical visitation of the association, conducted by Father James Conn, canon law professor at the Pontifical Gregorian University.

Archbishop Lucan noted that «Father Conn’s preliminary findings, as well as Father Baxter’s appointment as trustee, will help chart a course forward for the community.»

He added, «I’m grateful for Father Conn’s good work, and I have full confidence in Father Baxter’s ability to guide the visitation to a successful conclusion.»

The association was recognized by Archbishop Daniel Sheehan as a private association of the Christian faithful in 1992. In 1998 it was erected as a public association of the Christian faithful by Archbishop Elden Curtiss.
