On Friday, March 13, at the 5PM Conventual Mass, Br. Asiel Rodriguez, O.S.B. was received into Candidacy for Holy Orders by Abbot Melvin. The Rite of Candidacy was celebrated in preparation for Br. Asiel's Ordination to the Diaconate and then Priestly Ordination, both of which, God willing, will take place this year after his Solemn Vows.
