Our family grows!

Today on the feast of Our Mother of Perpetual Succour, Rev Br Martin Mary of the Crown of Thorns, C.SS.R. from Oxford, UK, pronounced his first vows.

"Ab illo benedicaris, in cuius honorem, cremaberis."
Rev Br Martin Mary, C.SS.R. pronounces his vows before Our Blessed Lord in the Holy Eucharist.

Very Rev Fr Michael Mary, C.SS.R. blesses the fire.
O Lord God, almighty Father, unfailing Light! Thou art the Maker of every light. Do thou sanctify + this new fire, and grant that after the darkness of this world, we may come with pure hearts to thee Who art perpetual Light. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Congratulations.

How large is the community on the island now?

Is the TLM used exclusively on the island these days, or are the Syrian and Byzantine Rites also offered?
