New Novices and Postulants
Today at 4:00 p.m. the Provincial Ministers of Sacred Heart, Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and Saint John the Baptist Provinces will receive their Postulants into the novitiate. The new Novices will live at San Damiano Friary in Cedar Lake, Indiana for one year. At the end of the year of formation they will profess Temporary Vows as Franciscan Friars. As Novices they are members of their respective provinces and can sign "O.F.M." after their names.
Next weekend, our province will receive two new men into our Postulancy Program in Cincinnati, OH. Later this summer, August 12, two of our Temporarily Professed Friars will celebrate their profession of Solemn or life-long Vows at a ceremony here in Cincinnati.
The province continues to grow with the advancement of our men in formation. Let us pray for them as they continue to discern their life as Franciscan Friars. (There will be updated pictures of our men in formation on the "Franciscan Formation" page of this web site after July 1.)
