On October 11th, 2017 at St. Rita Parish in Racine, WI. Br. Emmanuel "Manny" Isaac received the white novice habit in an investiture ceremony. The service was led by our provincial, Very Rev. Kevin Mullins, OSA, who was in Racine and invited to lead the ceremony. He later commented, "Manny was beaming, as were all of them, and I felt very blessed to join with them for this next step in their journey." Many of the students friars studying in Chicago, including Br. Adnan, drove up to attend and support the novices. Congratulations Br. Manny!
