Brother Joseph Thinh Tran, O.Carm. and Brother Francis X. Hai Pham, O.Carm., who have been in our novitiate at Brandsma Priory in Middletown, New York, will be professing their simple vows at a ceremony at The National Shrine of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in Middletown, New York on Monday, June 9th. After that, Brothers Joseph and Francis will return to Vietnam and are assigned to Our Lady of Mount Carmel Priory.They will both begin studies in philosophy at the Jesuit faculty in Saigon immediately. We wish them every blessing as they make their profession! It has been a joy having them here with us for the last few years while they have been in the formation program.
