Today at First Vespers of the Solemnity of Our Holy Father Augustine our new novice, Alex Morrison from Hertfordshire, received the holy habit of our Order. As is the custom he also received a religious name – he will henceforth be known as Brother Stephen in honour of the proto-martyr of the Catholic faith and also in tribute to our beloved confrere Father Stephen Cansse who departed this life last year.

Congratulations Brother Stephen!
Please keep Brother in your prayers during his novitiate and continue to pray that God will send more sons and daughters to the Premonstratensian Order.
Our Holy Fathers Augustine and Norbert, pray for us!
