Brother Francis Mary, kneeling, professes temporary vows to Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades during the Holy Mass of Temporary Vows at Our Lady of the Angels Oratory at St. Andrew Church in Fort Wayne on May 21. Standing near the bishop, left to right, are Brother John Paul Mary, seminarian Bob Garrow, and Franciscan Father David Mary Engo. Also professing temporary vows were Brother Fidelis Maria, Brother Isaac Mary and Brother Paul Maria. Prior to this Mass, Bishop Rhoades celebrated the Rite of Investiture with the friars community. Nine friars became novices, receiving new habits, cinctures and rosaries. The friars intend to send 10 of their members to Columbus, Ohio, to establish a second foundation, or house, with some of the brothers studying for the priesthood at the Pontifical College Josephinum seminary.
