The Companions of the Cross are happy to announce the lifetime promises of seminarians Dcn. Kevin Darwent and Dcn. Isaac Longworth. The promises were made at Holy Spirit Chapel at Visitation House in Detroit, MI on September 16, 2022.

“Tonight we celebrate and witness you making your final lifetime commitment to the Companions of the Cross. This is a very significant event in your life. It is part of the two-fold vocation that you have been called to… As Companions of the Cross, you have been called to the priesthood. Tomorrow you will make that definitive step by promising celibacy and being ordained as transitional deacons. Tonight we celebrate and we witness the other vocation that you’ve been called too, which is the vocation to membership and brotherhood in our community. It is the call to brotherhood. This is what sets us apart… We are called to shared life.”

Fr. Roger Vandenakker, CC General Superior

Dcn. Kevin and Dcn. Isaac will remain in Detroit to complete their studies at Sacred Heart Major Seminary for the last stage of their journeys towards the priesthood.

Fr. Bob Bedard, CC Founder had a vision for the Church coming explosively alive! He was deeply convicted that if enough people gave God permission, they would see God take initiatives and supply great renewal for the Church like never seen before. 

The Permission Movement is being re-awakened in Advent 2022!

Join us for Permission: The Series. This series of four talks will inspire and equip you to be more explosively alive in your faith.
