Our fraternity was also to perform various ministries at the Mass: Horace was the lector, Deacon Bill assisted (as deacon), and Jan filled a role as an Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist. For the profession itself, Paul was joined at the foot of the altar by our Minister and Formation Director. Most of the Rite of Profession took place after communion, but still, almost all the regular parishioners stayed to witness the ceremony.
Paul invited friends and family to celebrate with him, and after Mass, we moved downstairs to a fraternity pot luck. As God provides, there was food enough for all.
|Very nice crowd.|
|Delicious food with leftovers.|
