“Lord, I come to do your will.” Heb. 10:9
(Lipa, Philippines) The Redemptorist Asia-Oceania Novitiate Community celebrated the Temporary profession of vows of Bros. Mark Bennett Gonzales and Sigfrid O. Rosin of the Vice-Province of MANILA, Bros. Anthony Huynh Duy Ngoc Huy, Joseph Nguyen Van Vuong, Joseph Thai Duong and Joseph Vu Duc Trung of the Province of OCEANIA and Bro. Janan Dilshan Fernando of the Region of Oceania (SRI LANKA) on 4th of May, 2018 in Lipa.
The Liturgy was presided over by the Vice-Provincial Superior, Fr. Ariel Lubi, and Provincial Superior, Fr. Edmond Nixon, who also received their vows. The ceremony was held in the Divino Amor Shrine, Lipa City, in the province of Batangas, Philippines. A Temporary profession in a religious congregation takes place when a candidate for religious life makes his or her commitment to the Lord for the first time, by taking the vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience.
We wish them the best and the grace of perseverance as vowed Redemptorists.
