Brother Clifford Hennings, O.F.M. will make his Solemn Profession on Saturday, August 31st. By making this profession Bro. Clifford is committing himself to the Franciscan way of life permanently. This is a big step and we certainly want to assure Bro. Cliff of our prayers and support.
After his profession, Bro. Clifford will return to Chicago to complete his studies for the priesthood at the Catholic Theological Union.
Yesterday, Saturday August 17, Br. Richard Goodin, O.F.M. was ordained a Deacon. Here are some video highlights.
