Recommended Posts

Luigi

Congregation of Alexian Brothers is at Alexian Brothers Vocations.

4 January, 2018

THREE ALEXIAN BROTHERS' NEW POSTULANTS. Please join us in celebrating the three new men who are entering the Alexian Brothers Postulancy Class of 2018. JOE PENSE, ROBERT PODJARSKY, and MARC RIZZO have just recently been approved by the Alexian Brothers Leadership to move forward on their vocation journey with the Alexian Brothers Community. They will be inducted into Postulancy on January 20th during the Feast of St. Fabian and St. Sebastian at the Brothers Formation House in STL, MO. Please pray for God's continued inspiration and guidance upon these men as they strive to grow in their love for Christ and service to others. #BeAnAlexianBrother.#AlexianBrothers #ExtraordinaryMenExtraordinaryLIves

From Saint Anselm Abbey in New Hampshire. These two men were mentioned in the 2017 Entrances, Vows, & Ordinations thread when they entered as postulants last summer (on different days). They've made the next step and begun the novitiate (on the same day). There's a photo here. Saint Anselm Abbey now has two men in first vows and three novices.

Michael received the name Brother Titus. His monastic patron is Saint Titus, disciple of Saint Paul. Michael is a native of Swampscott, Massachusetts and graduated from Saint Anselm College in 2012.

Douglas received the name Brother Dunstan. His monastic patron is Saint Dunstan, a Benedictine monk who served as Archbishop of Canterbury in the 10th century. Douglas is a native of Boulder, Colorado.
