Br. Mark Martin makes Simple Monastic Profession

On December 8, 2018, the feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Br. Mark Martin Dilone, made his simple profession of monastic vows to Abbot Melvin J. Valvano, OSB in the Abbey Church of St. Mary.  We thank God for the gift of his vocation, may he continue to persevere with St. Benedict and the Blessed Virgin Mary as his guide.
