On 2 February 2014, the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, three Postulants entered the Novitiate in Esopus, NY (USA) during the celebration of the Eucharist and the Rite of Initiation into The Religious Life. Brother Sam Amos (Province of the United States of America), Brother James Hodge (Province of Australia) and Brother Jack O'Sullivan (Province of Australia) were entrusted to Brother Robert Clark (Master of Novices) by Brother Ben Consigli (Provincial of the Province of the United States of America) and Brother Paul Kane (Assistant Provincial and delegate of Brother Jeff Crowe Provincial of the Province of Australia). Each Novice Brother received a copy of the Constitutions, and a Marist Cross; two of the Novices chose to be invested with the habit of the Institute. Rev. Richard LaMorte, affiliated member of the Province celebrated the Mass attended by over a 100 Brothers, Lay Marists, and family members.  A reception and meal followed at the Marist Brothers Center at Esopus.
