Dominican Solemn Vows

May 7 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm PDT

Dominican Solemn Vows

Solemn Vows & Landscaping Clean Up
(come to one, or both)

10am Watch Party
Wonderful news!!
On May 7th, four Dominican student brothers will be taking their Solemn Vows (Brs. Scott Norgaard, Paschal Strader – both residency brothers at Newman, Br. Andrew Thomas Kang, and Br. Athanasius Thompson), and so vowing to live the Apostolic way of life of obedience, celibacy and poverty. This is like their wedding day because each brother gives of themselves to God as their one true spouse and to a way of life in imitation of Christ. We will have nice pastries and coffee available from 10am; the live-stream begins at 10:30am. Registration required (for ordering food). https://forms.gle/saFTxTSrzg5Tonks9
