Br Paul Mills and I have now entered the final stage of our Novitiate. The process has begun for our brethren to consider and vote on whether we may proceed to make Simple Profession in September. We had our first interviews today and the Formation Council votes on 16 June. Following that, if successful, we shall have yet another interview before the Provincial Council votes on 9 July. The Prior Provincial is expected to give us his decision fairly soon after that date and, if accepted, we will be allowed to make Simple Profession on 20 September 2006.
Do please pray for us as this month and this process unfolds, that God's will be done and that we be found worthy of the grace of a Dominican vocation.
I entrust myself and our cause into the hands of Our Lady of Guadalupe and the intercession of St Dominic, Blessed Jordan and all the Dominican saints.
