On Saturday, December 17, 2016, Prior Provincial Michael Di Gregorio, O.S.A., received the solemn vows professed by Aldo Potencio, O.S.A. Despite the blast of wintry weather, folks gathered at Saint Thomas of Villanova Church for a beautiful liturgy. Aldo’s brother, a member of the Augustinian Recollects, came from Rome to celebrate the occasion. Brother Aldo has been in formation at the Theologate in Chicago, studying at Catholic Theological Union. He is to be ordained to the diaconate at Saint Rita’s Parish in Chicago, on January 7, 2017.
