On Saturday June 27, 2020, Friar Peter M. KOZMA professed his solemn vows. Friar Peter is a member of the Provincial Custody of the Immaculate Conception of the B.V.M. in Slovakia.
The celebration took place at the Church of St. Francis of Assisi in Bratislava, where the Custody also has a formation house for temporarily professed friars. Many confreres from Slovakia and the Czech Republic attended, along with relatives and friends of the newly professed. The Provincial Custos, Friar Lucjan M. BOGUCKI, presided over the Mass. Also present among the concelebrants was Friar Tomáš LESŇÁK, the Assistant General for the Foederatio Europae Mediae et Orientalis (FEMO).
Friar Peter joined the Order in 2013 and made his simple profession in 2015. He is currently in his final year of theology studies in Bratislava and preparing for ordination to the diaconate.
May the decision of the newly professed to live forever in obedience, without anything of his own and in chastity, be a source of true joy and peace for him.
