The feast of Saint Louis Marie de Montfort, author of True Devotion to Mary and the spirit of our Order, was kept with special solemnity this year. After the Offertory of the Solemn High Mass, Brother Martin pronounced his First Vows of Poverty, Chastitiy and Obedience as a Slave of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Having signed his vows on the altar of IHM Chapel, Brother recieved the cassock and cincture of a professed Brother, and the lighted candle symbolic of the light of Christ.

After the Mass, all gathered to congratulate the new Brother MICM, and celebrate with a piece of cake. The afternoon reception was held in MacIsaac Hall and was a lovely afternoon of celebration for such a joyful occasion.
