in the summer of our lifetimes

Sixteen young men entered the Christian Brothers Novitiate in Narragansett, Rhode Island on Sunday, September 1, 1968. (The black-and-white image is from September, 1968. We received the robe on the Sunday, the picture was taken shortly after that.) Of those sixteen, 7 of us met in Narragansett for a 50-year re-union. (Kevin, who joined us for the re-union, had left and gone back home by Robe Day – the Sunday we went from Postulants to Novices. In the picture of us at dinner, Kevin is the person sitting on the far right.)

The person sitting in the middle, in the front row was Brother John Finnegan. He was the Provincial – head of the LI-NE District at the time. The person on his left was Brother John Veale our Director of Novices. Their grave-markers are in the cemetery at Narragansett. (The pic of the crucifix surrounded be the various shrubs is the center of the Brothers’ Cemetery at Narragansett.)

The aerial drone pic, of the property in Narragansett, is from Brother Michael Shubnell’s Facebook page.
