Photos: Br. Michael Professes First Vows at Villanova

We have a new Augustinian friar!

On Saturday, August 3, Br. Michael Riggs, O.S.A. made his first Profession of Vows to the Vicar General of the Augustinian Order. The ceremony, held at St. Thomas of Villanova Church on the Villanova University campus, came at the close of the 2019 Augustinian Formation Gathering. Br. Michael—a 26-year-old from Centereach, NY—will begin his graduate studies this Fall semester at the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago.
