Fr Aloysious – Celebration of the Profession of Final Vows in the Society of Jesus

2013-03-30T04:32:51+10:00

At the 10.30 am Sunday Mass at St Canice’s in Elizabeth Bay on 10th March 2013, Father Aloysious Mowe SJ made his Profession of Final Vows in the Society of Jesus.

The Provincial of the Australian Jesuits, Fr Steve Curtin SJ, presided at the Mass and received Aloysious’s vows on behalf of the Superior General of the Jesuits. Seven of Aloysious’ fellow Jesuits joined the parishioners of St Canice’s at the Mass to share this important milestone in his priestly life.

In a short address by Aloysious, he drew our attention to the last verse of a favourite hymn sung during the Mass by our Cantor, Pascal, which was written in the 17th century by Samuel Crossman.

Here might I stay and sing,
No story so divine;
Never was love, dear King!
Never was grief like Thine.
This is my Friend, in Whose sweet praise
I all my days could gladly spend.

After the Mass there was a simple celebration with coffee and cakes outside the church.

Congratulations Father Aloysious from everyone at St Canice’s!

    Thank you for these beautiful photos and write up of Aloysius’ important day on Sunday.

    We were blessed to benefit from Aloysius’ visits to our parish in Didcot, near Oxford UK, while he was studying in Oxford. Our family remember him fondly and my husband and I thank God for his inspiration in the lives of our teenage children who all thought he was the ‘coolest priest ever!’

    May God continue to bless him on his wonderful journey as he enriches the lives of those with whom he comes in to contact
