Alexian Brothers renew vows

Brother John Howard stands between Brothers Tom Klein and Andrew Dinegar.

Alexian Brothers Tom Klein and Andrew Dinegar renewed their vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience for the period of one year during a Dec. 10 Mass at the Alexian Brothers chapel in Signal Mountain.

Father Joseph Thomas, CMI, celebrated the Mass, with the vow renewal following his homily that focused on the consecrated life and prayer before the Blessed Sacrament.

Brother Tom Klein ministers in the Alexian Brothers Assisted Living Center and the Alexian Health Center and to the independent living residents. Brother Andrew Dinegar is fully engaged in the ministry to the homeless and hungry in the Chattanooga area. He has helped to bring service agencies together and has led Alexian Village residents to become interested in the poor and their needs. They have knitted caps and gloves and donated clothing.

Both Brothers have completed the 30-day Ignatian Exercises in preparation for Perpetual Profession in 2016.
