I had the honor of attending and was even asked to assist at the Investiture and Mass for Profession of Simple Vows at the Franciscans Brothers Minor in Fort Wayne a couple of weeks back. My nephew, Brother Francis, professed his vows that day.
The work that these men are doing and the growth in their community with a great increase of vocations is really a testament to the faith in that diocese.
My nephew was selected as one of the 10 Brothers who will go to Columbus Ohio to start a new house for brothers that will study at the the Pontifical Josephinum in Columbus Ohio.
Please keep Brother Francis and his community in your prayers.
