August 29, 2010

At the Sunday conventual Mass, in the presence of Prior Simon McGurk, the monks, his parents, some oblates and friends, Bro. Ignacio Gonzalez, having completed his first-year novitiate, made before God his Benedictine vows of Stability, Conversion of Life, and Obedience for a period of three years.

Bro. Ignacio found his way to Washington from his home in Texas to work as a legal assistant with a law firm, later in foreign exchange and lastly as a Spanish instructor for Berlitz Language Center before beginning his postulancy at the Abbey in the fall of 2008.

The monks are grateful for the musical gifts and the skills he brings to the Abbey to contribute to the liturgy and the classroom. It was truly a day of joy for all. Bro. Ignacio will begin his studies in the fall semester at the Dominican House of Studies.
