Congratulations to Augustinian Friar, Jack B. Tierney on his long anticipated ordination to the Order of Presbyter. Fr. Jack was ordained on July 25th (the feast of St. James the Apostle) by Bishop George J. Rassas at St. Rita of Cascia Shrine Chapel in Chicago, Illinois.
The Villanova Province rejoices in the ordination of our brother, Jack Tierney, who is a member of the Midwest Province and who did his
pre-novitiate formation at the then inter-provincial formation house, Bellesini Friary, in Ardmore. He also spent his pastoral year at our parish of St. Nicholas of Tolentine in the Bronx. May his ministry be fruitful and

“I am Ready.” by Br. Dan Madden, O.S.A.

“What happens over the course of formation—personal and relational growth— needs time, and therefore resources. I am grateful for my different formators and for the many growth-filled experiences formation has provided. Formation has shaped me into the Augustinian I am today. It has laid the foundation for a life of saying, “yes, I am ready,” even when I may find myself in uncomfortable and challenging situations. There is great peace in knowing that. Thank you for your prayers and for supporting me along this journey. It has made all the difference!”

“Whatever points are made by God’s holy scriptures, this is their ultimate point, to help us purge that inner faculty of ours from that thing that prevents us from beholding God.”
-Sermon 88, 5
