Pray for Brothers during their Novitiate Year

Four young Brothers are now more than a month into their experience at the Regional Novitiate, which began on July 27 in Chicago, Illinois. Brothers Kyle Mena and Joseph (J.D.) Macioce, of the District of Eastern North America, Brother Steven Angulo, of the Midwest District, and Brother Rafael Rodriguez, of the District of San Francisco New Orleans, are taking part in the one-year experience that aims “to situate the distinctive vocation of the Brother in salvation history and in the service of the Church” (Rule 93.3). They are accompanied by Brother Thomas Johnson, FSC, Novitiate director, and Brother Steven Vasoli, FSC, Novitiate sub-director.
