Br. Pat Connell takes First Vows

20/12/2010: Australia - Photo gallery

On Sunday 12th December, after successfully completing a two year Novitiate, Br Patrick Connell made his first vows as a Marist Brother. Present in the Bulleen chapel along with Pat and his family were a large group of Brothers from the two Provinces of Melbourne and Sydney and a number of Brothers from East Timor and Papua New Guinea. Br Julian Casey, Provincial of the Melbourne Province, representing the Superior General, Br Emili Turu, accepted Pat’s vows: a voluntary, public and ecclesial commitment to follow Christ as a Marist Brother. Br Tony Shears, Novice Master, presented Pat with his soutane and Br Julian, his cord, symbol of the vows. After the Mass and ceremiony, Pat’s mum, Gayle, father, John, grandmother and eight brothers and sisters joined the celebratory lunch in the Bulleen functions room.
