On November 25, 2021, Brother Thomas Augustine, MICM, celebrated 50 years of Religious Profession as a Slave of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. It was no coincidence that the day should fall on Thanksgiving… as we are so thankful for all that he has done for our community. Brother has served as Superior of the Order for many years and is the unseen force of so much that goes on here at Saint Benedict Center.

Golden Jubilee of Profession of Brother Thomas Augustine MICM

Although he preferred to forgo the big celebration that a Golden Jubilee calls for… this landmark event for our community could not be bypassed without some festivity. Before the big day the elementary students presented skits, songs and poetry in an assembly held in Brother’s honor. They presented cards and good wishes and a big treasure box which held the funds they had raised for the school expansion project!

The MICM community celebrated with a homemade Asian meal in his honor in the days following Thanksgiving; and the event was also celebrated with cake and coffee for the families after Sunday Mass.

We thank God for the 50 years of excellent example and leadership that Brother has given to Jesus through Mary… and we look forward  to many more! Ad multos Annos!
