Congratulations, Br. Manuel!

Cover     Thoughts and prayers are with our brother Manuel Avilés, OFM Cap., who was ordained a transitional Deacon on Saturday, May 3, 2014, at the National Basilica of the Immaculate Conception. The ordaining Bishop was +Martin D. Holley, Auxiliary Bishop of the Washington Archdiocese

The Lord has already blessed us with a brother who takes this new step in his faith journey. May the Lord bless your ministry and the people you serve, Manuel!

Br. Matt Hindelang, OFM Cap., from Sacred Heart Friary in DC, was able to capture almost 130 shots of the moment.  Sample moments from the Mass and the celebration that followed at our friary just up from the basilica, St. Francis Friary ('Capuchin College') . . . 


You can see all of Br. Matt's shots on Flickr

. . . and more shots came from Br. Manuel's Facebook pages
