On Saturday, July 16, 2016, our brothers Rigobel Azanwi, OFM Cap., Stephen Wright, OFM Cap., and Theo Simatupang, OFM Cap., professed the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience in the presence of our Provincial Minister, Tom Betz, OFM Cap., and the friars, friends and families who were present for the celebration.
The Profession of their vows follows their journeys of discernemnt in their year of Postulancy (as candidates in Philadelphia, PA) and their year of novitiate with other Capuchins of the North America/Pacific Conference in Santa Ynez, CA. The new friars are now assigned to post-novitiate formation & studies at St. Francis Friary ("Capuchin College") in Washington, DC.
Here are some pictures of the event.
