NOVICES TO PROFESS FIRST VOWS
Novice Mark Motz will profess first vows in the Society of Mary on May 18 in Dayton. Mark, 22, was born in Cincinnati. He graduated from Archbishop Moeller High School in 2006 and graduated from the University of Dayton in 2010 with a bachelor’s degree in religious studies.
Five Indian novices will profess first vows on May 1: Pratap Beck, Praveen Kumar Antony Cruz, Jerin Johny Pananthanam, Telesphore Sorengand Arockia and Felix Raja Susainatha. “Special thanks to Fr. Chris Wittmann, Bro. Charlie Johnson, Fr. Ignatius Arulappen and his formation team in Ranchi for their careful and diligent accompaniment of these young men in the initial stages of their religious vocations,” said Provincial Marty Solma.“Theirs is a most important ministry and the Province is deeply grateful for their care, generosity and religious spirit.”
Congratulations and best wishes!
