Marianist Monday

The Province of Meribah gathered together on Sunday, August 26th in the Chapel of the Our Lady's Assumption to witness Fr. Todd Saccoccia take his promises of the Novitiate.

After a year-long period of Aspirancy Fr. Todd now begins his canonical year of novitiate. During this intense year of prayer and discernment, he is instructed in elements of Marianist religious life and learns further how to live as a Marianist among Brothers.

The novitiate year concludes with the profession of temporary vows, usually made for a period of three years.

Provincial Brother Thomas and Assistant Provincial Father Garrett are pictured with Fr. Todd and his parents.

Fr. Todd promises to follow Christ more closely as he begin his Novitiate in the Society of Mary.
