Blessings, Br. Chris!

Maybe you've met Br. Chris Alar, MIC, who has been barnstorming the country for the past couple years speaking to parishes and youth groups as part of the Marians' Parish Mission Team.

The Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception are pleased to announce that Br. Chris will profess his perpetual vows on Friday, Aug. 16, at the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, Mass. God willing, Br. Chris will then be ordained to the diaconate, possibly this fall, the final step on the way to his priestly ordination.

Have you got a message to send Br. Chris? Congrats? Prayers? We invite you to do so down below.

Also, if you would like to make a donation to the Marians' seminarian fund in Br. Chris' honor, please visit
