Please join us in warmly welcoming Beverly and Nicholas as members of the St. Anthony Fraternity. Thank you to members of the Gaylord fraternity who were able to join us.

Beverly and Nicholas declared their permanent profession to the Order of Secular Franciscans during the Liturgy of the Word at Cross in the Woods National Shrine in Indian River. The profession occurred on Sunday, October 4, the feast day of our Father St. Francis of Assisi.

Officiating were Father Mike Haney, OFM, as pastor and spiritual assistant to the St. Anthony Fraternity, and Kevin Wahr, OFS, as fraternity minister, who accepted the commitment and the profession for both new members. Jim Hagenauer, OFS, assisted as the formation minister.

The Rite of Profession is a culmination of three years of formation and discernment of the Franciscan life and represents a permanent commitment to living the Gospel life as St. Francis of Assisi did.
