Spring Brings Oath Renewals for Glenmarians

Glenmary candidates for Brotherhood and priesthood are renewing their annual, temporary oaths this month. The group this year includes Br. Erick Orandi, Br. Willy Kyagulanyi, Br.

Thomas Nguyen, Joseph Maundu, Cavine Okello, Br. Corey Soignier, Br. Jude Smith, Evarist Mukamam Aloysius Ssennyondo, Philip Langford, Raphael Kavita, Alex Omari, and Moses Ndungu’u. These men are at different stages of formation as they take these oaths. Some are in seminary at St. Meinrad in Indiana, some are Brothers in training at various places for various ministries.

Altogether there are 13 men in formation at Glenmary at this time, and a new, smaller group of novices are coming this summer to discern their calling with Glenmary.

Four of these men will profess final, lifelong oaths in June: two Brothers (Willy Kyagulanyi and Erick Orandi) and two seminarians (Joseph Maundu and Cavine Okello). Willy is studying to be a nurse; Erick is currently in parish ministry. Glenmary is growing!
