Solemn Profession of Br. Joseph Carron

On 25th March, the Solemnity of the Annunciation, Br. Joseph Carron made his Solemn Profession. During the course of the Conventual Mass, in the presence of the monastic community and many friends and family members who had made the journey, he pronounced his solemn vows of Obedience, Stability and Conversion of Life. He is pictured above, receiving the sign of peace from Abbot Anselm at the conclusion of the profession ceremony.

Br. Joseph comes from Birmingham and has been with us since 2008. During his period of monastic formation, Br. Joseph has worked in the kitchen and the garden, as well as completing the usual course of studies. He has also proved to be a very able Master of Ceremonies.
