Saint Francis friary - july 14, 2017


Bro. Vincent Yeager

  “I vow to God the Father, Holy and Almighty, to live for the whole of my life in obedience, in poverty and in chastity, and promise faithfully to observe the life and Rule of the Brothers and Sisters of the Third Order Regular of Saint Francis of Assisi, confirmed by Pope Saint John Paul II, according to the Constitutions of the same Order.”


On Friday, July 14, 2017 Brother Vincent Yeager, T.O.R. professed solemn vows (final) in the Third Order Regular of Saint Francis.  The ceremony took place during the Summer Gathering of the Franciscan Province of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.  Approximately 95 friars were present for the Summer Gathering.

Brother Vincent’s Solemn Profession took place at Saint Francis Friary in Loretto, Pennsylvania.  The Very Rev. Richard L. Davis, T.O.R., Minister Provincial received his vows in the present of Friars, family members and friends.  

Brother Vince grew up in Patton, Pennsylvania and is a Penn State Altoona alumnus who turned down multiple job offers in engineering (his field of study) in order to become a friar. Since his Simple Profession in May of 2013, he has been studying for the priesthood at the Catholic University of America.  During the past academic year, Brother Vince lived in Sacred Heart Friary, Loretto and worked at Saint Francis University in the same department of campus ministry where he was first introduced to the friars prior to his entrance into postulancy after his college graduation in 2011. Brother Vince has six siblings—all of them sisters. He eagerly anticipates gaining a fraternity of lifelong brothers!
