On Saturday, March 19th, Br. John, OSF professed his final - lifetime - vows within the framework of The Franciscans of Fort Lauderdale.
John's journey began with us 2012, when he inquired about our Community. The process began when he became a postulant, which lasted six months. Upon receiving his habit, he began his time as a novice. When the novice year ended, he asked to and was given permission to take his annual promises for the next three years. In our Community after the three years are concluded the friar must either ask to become a life time member or leaves on his own free will.
Naturally, John asked to profess his life promises and we agreed. He is a valuable member of our Community and we welcome his decision with thanks, well wishes and many prayers.
