Tony Wolniakowski becomes Brother Kolbe

On August 6th, the Feast of the Transfiguration, Tony Wolniakowski

made his first profession of vows with the Saint Meinrad Archabbey.

This is an important step to Brother Kolbe becoming a Benedictine monk.

In three years, God willing, he will take his final profession of vows and

then continue his seminary studies with the hope of becoming a priest in five to

six years.


Brother Kolbe is very grateful for the support he has received from his St. Joseph Parish family.

On August 16th he will be home for a short visit and hopes to see many of you then!

Thank you for your continued prayers!
