Today starts our three days of special celebrations here at Daylesford Abbey as we celebrate the Feast of Saint Augustine tomorrow. Since we follow the Rule of Saint Augustine, his feast day if very important to us.
At Evening Prayer today, Frat. Sam Fulginiti (our second year novice this past year) will profess his Simple Vows. These Vows are taken for a three year period. Then tomorrow at Mass, Frat. James Garvey, O. Praem., will profess his Solemn Vows in the Abbey Church. These Vows are sometimes referred to as Permanent Vows. Finally on Saturday, both Frat. A. Gerard Jordan, O. Praem. And Frat. James Garvey, O. Praem., will be ordained Deacons. These are truly joyful days for us at Daylesford Abbey. Please keep Frat. Sam, Frat. James, and Frat. Gerard in your prayers.
