I, Brother Trenton Rauck, in the presence of the Most Holy Trinity, of the most blessed Virgin Mary conceived without sin, of St. Michael the Archangel, of St. John the Baptist, of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul, of St. John Cantius of all the Saints and before you, Father vow to God to offer and give myself to the Church.  I promise a conversion of my ways and life in community, especially in perpetual poverty, chastity and obedience, according to the Gospel of Christ and the apostolic way of life, according to the Rule of St. Augustine and the Customs of the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius. I beseech God that as He has inspired me with the will to profess these vows, He may also grant me the grace to fulfill them.
