Simple Profession 2007

Sunday, September 23, 2007
On 22 September, after the clothing of the new novices (see post below), two brothers finishing the novitiate in Cambridge made simple profession in the Order. Please remember them in your prayers. (They will of course be joining the 'Godzdogz' team in Oxford, so please welcome Br Robert Verrill OP and Br Daniel Mary Jeffries OP.)

Below are some photos from the Simple Profession Mass, which was followed by a reception in the priory:

The novices make the form of a Cross, as a sign of the total gift of themselves to the service of the God and His Church in the footsteps of St Dominic.

Br Robert makes Profession.

Br Daniel Mary makes Profession.

The Prior Provincial blesses the scapulars of the newly-professed.

Br Robert & Br Daniel were joined by family and friends.

So there are now three novices at Cambridge and there will be fourteen students at Oxford this academic year, from four provinces (England, Belgium, Ireland and the province of St Martin de Porres in the Southern USA). Please pray that our kindest Lord, in whose hand are all good things, may increase our love and our peace as we seek to become ever more completely the loving servants of his Word.
