Over the last few years, Frater Jeffrey Himes, O. Praem. has devoted his life to Christ at Daylesford Abbey. On August 28, 2019 (the Feast of St. Augustine), he made his Solemn Profession before the Norbertine Community here at Daylesford Abbey. Frater Jeffrey has chosen to live a life in communio with his brothers at Daylesford Abbey. In communio means leading a common life with common prayer at Daylesford Abbey.
In making his Solemn Profession, Frater Jeffrey has completed the Affilate program, Novitiate and Temporary Profession. This is his step before being ordained a Catholic priest. Solemn Profession vows are made for life, and Frater Jeffrey is now a permanent and full member of the Norbertine community. Following this stage, he will complete any further educational requirements that he might need for priesthood. For brother candidates, this will continue to be a time to fulfill whatever requirements may be necessary for his ministry.
