A Vocation Grows Within A Family

A vocation grows within a family, and a part of Stephen’s Solemn Profession was affiliating his mother Mary to the Order. We also remembered Tony, Stephen’s dad, who passed away when Stephen was young, may he rest in peace.
As Father General, the head of the Order in Rome, wrote, “ It is proper to show our gratitude to those to whom the Augustinian Family is particularly indebted…Your generosity is giving your son, Stephen, to the Lord in the Irish Augustinian Family deserves our special thanks.” The scroll presented to Mary affiliating her to the Order means we now regard her as part of our family in the same way as Stephen is. Congratulations Mary and all the family on your special day.
