Myself and my confrere, Br. Theodore, made our Solemn Vows at Marmion Abbey on July 11th. We'll also have a Claustral Oblation on October 3rd (Feast of Bl. Columba Marmion), and the investiture of our Postulant the night before.

Congratulations, and thank you for  your vocation!

Myself and one other brother will be making our Solemn Professions on Corpus Christi Sunday. We have one other brother who will be making Simple Profession a couple days later.

I enter Holy Trinity Seminary August 19th for the diocese of Wichita, KS.

Please join our Missionary Benedictine Sisters in giving thanks for our new Postulants!

Bro Marion, of St. Bernard Abbey in Cullman, Alabama, professed first vows (?) in August: 

Br. Marion places his vows document on the altar.

I think that Br Marion professed Solemn Vows in August.

Ad multos annos to him ... and every joyous blessing to the community at St Bernard's.

Regarding the new novice at St. Joseph's Benedictine Abbey... can monks become priests as well, or are they mutually exclusive?

Most certainly monks can become priests (and vice versa) but in the Benedictine tradition, the primary vocation is to be a monk rather than to be a priest. To a large extent they are separate vocations and in the majority of monasteries within the Benedictine Confederation, one does not begin the formal discernment about diaconate or priesthood until one has made solemn vows as a monk.

Congratulations to you and to Br Theodore. I send my prayers to you both and to the community in Aurora.

St. Benedict's Abbey in Kansas received two postulants on September 8th.

Subiaco Benedictine Abbey invested a novice on September 7th, and one of their two novices made first vows on September 8th.

(Subiaco, like St. Meinrad's in Indiana, receives novices in February and September. So a man who enters as a postulant in February, is invested as a novice in September, while a man who enters as a postulant in September is invested as a novice in February. At least, I think that's the way it works.)
