Formation Begins with Priests Fraternity of St. Dominic

On Friday, 22 February, the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter, in the choir of the Convent of SS. Dominic and Sixtus, two men (Alan Hyacinthe-Marie du Sacré Cœur de Jésus Martineau of the Diocese of Worcester, Massachusetts, USA, and Bradley Jordan Mary Sjoquist of the Diocese of Marquette, Michigan, USA) were received as novices in the Priestly Fraternity of St. Dominic. As members of the Dominican family, priests in the Priestly Fraternity will embrace more fully the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity, and obedience, with the spiritual aids of the charism, prayers, and life of the Order of Preachers, lived out in the context of the life of a secular priest, serving their local church and bishop.  MORE PHOTOS
