Seven Young Friars Profess First Vows

Class of 2009This morning,June 15, 2009, seven young men professed their First Vows as members of the Order of Friars Minor in Cedar Lake, IN. Having completed their year of Novitiate, these seven Friars professed to live the life of the Friars Minor in Obedience, Chastity and without appropriating anything of their own.

They are (from left to right) Galen Osby, O.F.M. of the Province of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary; Martin Flores, O.F.M. of the Province of the Sacred Heart; and from the Province of Saint John the Baptist Roger Lopez, O.F.M., Daniel Helfrich, O.F.M., Joshua van Cleef, O.F.M., Tim Tran, O.F.M. and Clifford Hennings, O.F.M.

We proudly present the newest professed members of the Franciscans.



This giving of self in first profession of vows is a great witness to hope. These guys have been in my prayers and I am delighted to see the joy, the growth, the enthusiasm and the gusto with which these friars seek to live the vision of Francis.

Ad multos annos!

And... congratulations to the newly professed and their provinces!
