February 3, 2017
The profession of a Beaumont, TX, resident and 2011 graduate of Subiaco Academy as a Benedictine monk took place in the Subiaco Abbey Church February 2, 2017.
During Vespers on February 2, 2017, Novice Zach Boyer presented his written and signed petition to Abbot Leonard who then welcomed his public profession of monastic vows for three years. Reflecting this change in his state of life, the Abbot assigned him a new name. After three years from that time, he will be eligible to make his final, perpetual vows.
Br. John Paul (Zach) Boyer comes from Beaumont, Tx where he lived most of his life before coming to Subiaco in the 2007-2008 School year as a freshman in the Academy. He is a graduate of Port Neches Elementary, St. Anne’s Middle School, Subiaco Academy, and Benedictine College in Atchinson. Kansas.
