On Friday, December 30, 2022, three confreres of the Provincial Custody of Blessed Agnellus of Pisa in Great Britain-Ireland, namely, Friars Terence BATEMAN, John Paul BANKS and Peter George FLYNN, professed their solemn vows into the hands of the Provincial Custos, Friar Maximilian MARTIN. The event took place at the St. Anthony of Padua Church in Mossley Hill, Liverpool, UK.
Those present at the solemn profession included Friar Gary Ward JOHNSON, the Vicar Provincial of the Mother Province of Our Lady of the Angels in the USA; friars from the Custody of England-Ireland; and several priests and students from Oxford. Also present were the two witnesses for the solemn professions, Friars Giles ZAKOWICZ and Kevin HANLEY.
We pray for the perseverance and sanctification of our newly professed confreres in the Franciscan vocation to which God has called us.
Friar Kevin HANLEY, Custodial Secretary/Editorial Staff
