Solemn Profession Sm

  “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.”

 Brother Marius Strom and Brother David Dodd made their Solemn Profession of vows on July 20, 2018 in the Immaculate Conception Chapel on the campus of Saint Francis University, Loretto, Pennsylvania.

The Franciscan Friars of the Third Order Regular, Province of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus joyfully celebrated the Solemn Profession of Brother Marius Strom and Brother David Dodd during their annual Gathering in Loretto on July 20, 2018.  The Solemn Profession took place during a Eucharistic Liturgy at the Immaculate Conception Chapel on the campus of Saint Francis University in Loretto, Pennsylvania. 

When asked by the Minister Provincial, what do you ask of the Lord and of his holy Church?

 Brother Marius and Brother David responded: I ask by professing the rule and life in the Third Order Regular of Saint Francis, I may be able to follow the teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ and with his holy operation follow in his footsteps all the days of my life.

The assembled community of Friars, family and friends joyfully affirmed their request.

During the recitation of their vows, Brother Marius and Brother David vowed to live for the whole of their lives 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. 

We are thankful for our brothers and their commitment to our Franciscan community and ask the Lord to continue to bless them as they continue to contribute to the life of the community.
