Final Vows 2011
On Saturday, August 27th, 2011, Matthew Kuczora, C.S.C. professed forever the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience in the Congregation of Holy Cross. In this he became a permanent member of the community and committed himself to our common life and ministry. The following day he was ordained a deacon in continued preparation for his ordination to the priesthood which is anticipated for the spring of 2012. Below are pictures and the video from his Final Vow Mass along with a selection of homilies from the weekend's celebrations.
