Ad Tres Annos

This morning Br John George concluded his novitiate year and made vows of stability, conversatio morum and obedience for three years.

His formation in the monastic life will continue and we pray that he will persevere to life vows in 2019. Br John comes from our parish in Little Malvern, Worcestershire, and was reminded in Dom Leo’s homily that monastic life would not always be easy, but that he could be assured of the presence of God and the support of the community. Please pray for him, and that he will be joined by others.

If you are considering a vocation to the priesthood or monastic life, then contact Dom Anselm and think about coming to the Vocations’ Weekend in December. To learn more about vocations at Downside, click here.
