(Wanno Gaspar, Indonesia) Br. Bartolomeus Boli CSsR from the Province of Indonesia, committed himself totally to the congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer through his perpetual profession on March 16, 2020, at the Redemptorist Monastery Wanno Gaspar.
It was indeed a special day for all the confreres of the Province of Indonesia. This event was even more joyful because this celebration was celebrated on the 200th Death Anniversary of Saint Clement Mary Hofbauer.
Brother Barto was born in Leragere on 26 October 1985. Barto was from Lembata Island, Indonesia. After making his first vows in 2012, Brother immediately was assigned to serve in the Mission Team. In the Mission, Barto was entrusted to serve and assist Sunday school children. In August 2019 Br. Barto prepared for his final profession by attending a 40-days retreat at Wisma Roncali, Salatiga, Central Java. After much discernment process, the application for the vows was finally accepted, then Barto was allowed to make his perpetual commitment to the Congregation through his perpetual vows.
May his final Profession that is pledged today be a blessing to all of us and may the prayers of the confreres, families, and people present strengthen his vocation as a true a Redemptorist.
Copiosa Apud Eum Redemptio.
Fr. Willy Ng Pala, CSsR
