Message from a future Monk

Br. David Olds, soon to be resuming his novitiate with the Order of St. Agustine, sends the following summary message of thanks for good wishes and encouragement. The Brothers of the Little Oratory in San Diego came to know David Olds some years ago while he was beginning his Augustinian journey with the community here in North Park, San Diego. We assure David of the continued prayers of his Oratorian friends in Christ, and of our hope that, while we will see him in spirit with constancy, we will see him physically sooner than later!

"Dear All, sorry to put this in a mass email. I was so excited I had to send it ASAP
as I sit here at work.

Just wanted to thank all of you for your prayers over the last few weeks.
As you know I will be continuing my formation with the Augustinians in San
Francisco. I will be moving in next month.

I just received my acceptance letter from The University of San Francisco
today! I know it is through His grace and your intercession! Thank you!

My Thanks to Bishop Cordileone, Fr Gary, Fr Tom, Fr Jim, Fr Rex, Fr Bob,
Helen, Tristan, John, Uncle Rich, Uncle Steve, Sean and my best bud Shane!

Pax Christi, Dave"
