According to the Constitutions of the Congregation of Holy Cross, the 10 men profess perpetual vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience. For the past several years, they have been in a period of temporary vows, which they renewed annually. On Saturday, August 26, they committed their lives and work to the communal life and ministry of Holy Cross.
On Sunday, August 27, Puleo, Jakubowski, Dolphin, Ryan, Guiney, Kerr, Kreipke, and Vetter were ordained to the Order of the Deacon in the Moreau Seminary Chapel by Bishop Rhoades.
