In one weekend, on two separate coasts, the Augustinians of North America ordained a priest and a deacon and received the solemn profession of vows of a religious brother. We are delighted to share with you some of our favorite photos of the ceremonies.
On Saturday, December 15, the California Province celebrated the ordination of Fr. Maxime Villeneuve, O.S.A. to the priesthood and Dcn. Nicholas Porter, O.S.A. to the diaconate. The two were ordained by Most Rev. Robert McElroy, Bishop of San Diego, at St. Patrick Catholic Church.
On December 16, 2018, Br. Jack Tierney, O.S.A. professed his Solemn Vows to Very Rev. Anthony Pizzo, O.S.A., Prior of the Midwest Augustinian Province, at St. Thomas of Villanova Church in Villanova, Pennsylvania. Br. Jack, native of Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, first found the Augustinians through the online service Vocation Match.
