Brother Mary John Blaschik makes Solemn Profession of Vows at Holy Cross Abbey

Holy Cross Abbey, Berryville, VA-  On Saturday, June 17, our monastic community had the special joy and grace of celebrating the Profession of Final Vows by our Brother Mary John Blaschik. This solemn ceremony occurred in the presence of Brother John’s family, close friends, and other monastic guests. It was significant for the monastic community in that it was the first Solemn Profession in thirteen years. Join us, therefore, in thanking God for the grace of Brother John’s perseverance through his six years of formation. Let us continue to accompany him with our prayers and loving support in the years ahead.

Please pray for Brother Mary John and all of our Order’s monks and nuns.
