On Monday July 10, Mr. Ryan Sarasin was received into the novitiate and was clothed in the monastic habit. Abbot Mark gave him his religious name, Brother Aloysius. Brother Aloysius' patron is Saint Aloysius Gonzaga, patron saint of youth and students. Brother Aloysius graduated from Saint Anselm College in 2017. Father Peter Guerin, O.S.B. will serve as his Novice Master. Please pray for Brother Aloysius as he begins this year of formation. Please continue to pray that our community will be blessed with new and holy vocations.
