Drawn in the Spirit's tether

On Saturday, 7 September 2013, two postulants of the Congregation of Holy Cross took their final vows at Notre Dame, Indiana, USA: the Shipmate whom we know as Hart, and his fellow seminarian Patrick. The next day, both men were ordained to the diaconate by the Archbishop of Indianapolis. A team of Mystery Worshippers was on hand to memorialise the occasion for posterity. Share with Hart and Patrick the joy of the moment as seen from the Ship's unique vantage point – the back row of pews, naturally!
