Final Vows 2013

On Saturday, September 7, 2013, Adam Booth, C.S.C. and Patrick Reidy, C.S.C. professed forever the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience in the Congregation of Holy Cross. In this, they became permanent members of the community and committed contributors to our common life and ministry. The following day they were ordained deacons in continued preparation for their ordination to the priesthood which is anticipated for the spring of 2014. Below are pictures and the video from the Final Vow Mass along with a selection of homilies from the weekend's celebrations.
