Six to profess final vows, be ordained transitional deacons in Holy Cross

August 28, 2014

With joy and thanksgiving, the Congregation of Holy Cross will celebrate the final profession of vows of six men at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 13, 2014, at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart at Notre Dame.

Rev. Thomas J. O’Hara, C.S.C., provincial superior of the United States Province of Priests and Brothers, will preside at the Mass and receive the vows of Matthew E. Fase, C.S.C.; David J. Halm, C.S.C.; Timothy N. Mouton, C.S.C.; Stephen C. Pepper, C.S.C.; Daniel M. Ponisciak, C.S.C.; and Christopher M. Rehagen, C.S.C.

The six – the largest class of Holy Cross deacons in more than a decade – will take the vows of chastity, poverty and obedience according to the Constitutions of the Congregation of Holy Cross. For the past several years, they have been in a period of temporary vows, which they renewed annually. On Sept. 13, they will commit their lives and work to the communal life and ministry of Holy Cross.

They will be ordained to the Order of the Deacon at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 14, 2014, in the Moreau Seminary Chapel by Most Rev. Kevin C. Rhoades, Bishop of the Fort Wayne-South Bend Diocese.

Ave Maria Press is the publishing apostolate of the U.S. Province.
