Capuchin Franciscans Western America Province

Novices Profess First Vows

 
“Don’t Negotiate with your Vows!” Fr Harold Snider, Provincial Minister, gave this advice to the two brothers who professed the vows of Poverty, Chastity, and Obedience on July 12, 2014 at Mission Santa Ines.
 
Br Lance Houck (30), from Lodi, California, and Br Victor Taglianetti (26), from Rancho Cuchamonga, California both professed vows after spending a year of prayer and discernment at San Lorenzo Seminary in Santa Ynez for their Novitiate. Both will be assigned to St Conrad Friary in Berkeley where they will continue their formation.
 
The province celebrates these two men professing vows who will join the other four students in formation in the province.
