July 21st Brother Brian Sullivan pronounced his vows of poverty, chastity and obedience at a Mass at St. Francis Church, Hackensack, NJ. The pictures depict his professing his vows to the Minister Provincial. From there he is signing the official document of profession. Sitting now he is really beaming with joy, affirmed with his thumbs up. Pax et Bonum!
