Solemn Vows of Dominican Friar Carl Paustian

Dear Parishioners & Visitors,

This coming Saturday, May 28, at our 12:05 Eucharist, Dominican friar Carl Paustian, O.P., will be consecrating his life to God in the Order of Preachers as he professes his Solemn Vows. This is a great opportunity to witness a preacher and one who cares for souls committing his life until death. Following his Solemn Vows, student brother Carl will continue his theological studies and later be ordained Deacon and Priest as he grows in living God’s call to preach the Truth, to live the Way, to alleviate su ering, and to bend his head to God’s holy will.

Please come and join your community of Holy Rosary and the Dominican family professed religious and lay members for this meaningful occasion. In this we are also promoting vocations, especially as we need to con- tinue to have the priests and religious necessary to help both the Church and our parish thrive. Please join us for the reception immediately follow- ing the Eucharist in the parish hall. This will be a superb opportunity to meet friar Carl who is a most joy- lled, bright, and solicitous young man. “How beautiful on the mountaintops are the feet of those who bring good news, …”

All graces be yours in the Holy Trinity,

fr. Chris, O.P.
