Following two long and very hot months of language school in Perugia on the 9th of September we were finally invested in the habit of St. Francis in the basilica which houses his body.
The three of us: Joseph Freeman (21 from England), Kieran Murphy (32 from New Zealand), and Osvaldo Lòpez Figueroa (34 from Mexico), having spent the past year of the postulancy in prayer and discernment at the formation house of the custody in Oxford were overjoyed to begin properly our journey as friars.
With the investiture begins the twelve month long period called the novitiate where we pray, study the rule and life of the friars, and experince the intensity of community life. The novitiate in Assisi is an international program with novices from all the provinces of Italy, Croatia , Germany, Spain as well as us. In total for this year we are 19. Please keep us in your prayers as we try to grow in virtue awaiting the day of our profession if God so wishes. Pax et Bonum.
