INONDALE, Ala. – On the feast of the Transfiguration, Br. John Therese Marie renewed his temporary vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience during the EWTN televised Mass. Br. John Therese has now renewed his temporary vows for fourth consecutive year and the friars are now looking and praying towards Brother professing his final vows next August.
When a friar makes his final profession of vows, he consecrates himself to God for the whole of his life. Currently, Br. John Therese is busy taking philosophy classes, taking care of friary maintenance, and assisting the EWTN pilgrimage department with tours. Brother is projected to begin his seminary studies at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary in Emmitsburg,MD in the fall of 2017.
