A New Novice for SSF!

Richard Fryer was received into the Novitiate of the Society of St Francis today (the 29th of March). During the service (which took place in the Chapel of Alnmouth Friary) Richard promised to abide by the Rule of the Society whilst in the Novitiate, received the Manual of the Society (the collection of documents which governs SSF) and also received a Franciscan habit and rope with one knot in it to symbolise his promise. Please pray for Richard as he continues his journey as Br Richard nSSF and for more men and women to hear the call to Religious Life.
