Four Benedictines Make Solemn Profession of Vows

Four Benedictines Make Solemn Profession of Vows Monday, July 13, 1998

 The Rt. Rev. Douglas R. Nowicki, O.S.B., Archabbot of Saint Vincent Archabbey, Latrobe, accepted the solemn vows of four Benedictines on Saturday, July 11, during ceremonies at Saint Vincent Basilica.

After spending one year as a novice and three years as a junior monk, a period of reflection and monastic formation, the Benedictine brothers may petition for solemn vows, which are a commitment to monastic vows for life.

The four making their professions were Brother Anthony J. Grossi, O.S.B., a native of Butler; Brother Edward M. Mazich, O.S.B., originally from Danville; Brother Hugh D. Lester, O.S.B., formerly of Washington and Brother Matthew T. Laffey, O.S.B., a Pittsburgh native.

Saint Vincent de Paul
This day now marks the feast of Saint Vincent de Paul, for whom Bishop Kenrick dedicated and named the Saint Vincent parish. The original date of dedicate was July 19; however, the feast day was changed to the date of the death of Vincent de Paul, who went on to found an orphanage, and who was known as an advocate of the poor. He was canonized in 1737, 77 years after his death.
