On Saturday, August 27, 2016, Michael Palmer, C.S.C., and Ryan Pietrocarlo, C.S.C., professed forever the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience in the Congregation of Holy Cross. In this, they became permanent members of the community and committed contributors to our common life and ministry. The following day they were ordained deacons in continued preparation for their Ordination to the priesthood which is anticipated for the spring of 2017. Below are pictures from the Final Vow Mass.
