Yesterday morning I attended a Mass of Solemn Profession where my friend Karl, with 5 of his fellow Dominican Brothers, took vows to dedicates himself totally to God.  It was a wonderful ceremony to witness and I was so happy to see Br. Lupe take another step on his life's journey  and follow God's Call. He looked so happy and I was so proud of him!

Here are some of my favorite pictures taken to record this wonderful occasion:

After the Gospel was proclaimed, the Brothers to be professed prostrated themselves with their hands extended in the form of the a cross:

Another wonderful part of my visit to St. Dominic's was to get to see some of my friends from the time I used to be a parishioner and a member of the Young Adult Group:

                                 Joe, Tim and Larry
Sarndra, Jay and Susan                                      
                                                   Susan, Maria, Bobby, Tim and Virginia 

I love this picture of Karl, oopsh I should say Br. Lupe, chatting with some guests outside the reception in the Parish Hall.  It is a typical pose of his that I remember seeing often as he listened intently to others at Young Adult Meetings, at Choir events, at Renew meetings and at many late night parties that I had the pleasure of sharing with him.

And a final one of Karl and Leona:

And here is a slide show of all the photos I took on the day:
