Feast of Ss Adrian and James and First Profession of Br Pius

Br Pius with his mother, Brenda Collins

Monday 9th July is the memoria of Ss Adrian and James O.Praem, two of the martyrs of Gorcum, about whom we have blogged previously. On this special day when we remember and celebrate two holy Norbertine Canons, and their companions we also celebrated my Simple Profession of Vows.

It was a wonderful and prayerful occasion and the community was joined by my friends and family.

Thanks go out in particular to the canonry, all helped prepare and serve the Mass, as well the choir, organist, and Catholic Women’s League for the buffet afterwards. Please keep me in your prayers as I begin my life as a vowed religious.

Our Holy Father Augustine, pray for us
Our Holy Father Norbert, pray for us
Ss Adrian and James, and all the martyrs of Gorcum, pray for us
