First Profession in Manaus


Six young men – Adriano da Silva and Jamilson Domingos de Castro (Coari, Amazonas), Clemer Pereira da Silva (Cruzeiro do Sul, State of Acre), Eduardo Lima Fernandes (Porto Walter, State of Acre), Marino Quadra do Carmo (Manacapuru, Amazonas), Renan Alberto Lima de Oliveira (Manaus, Amazonas) – professed their first religious vows on January 22.

The Eucharistic celebration was held in the Shrine of Our Lady of Aparecida in Manaus. Fr. José Amarildo Luciano da Silva, Vice Provincial Superior of the Vice Province of Manaus, presided at the Mass. Concelebrants included Bishop Emeritus Gutemberg Freire Régis of Coari, Redemptorist priests and Brothers, and other religious. Family members, friends and others from various parishes participated in the Mass, as well as 29 Redemptorists from all parts of Latin America who have been meeting at our Casa de Retiro Crostarosa in Manaus since January 5 in “segund novitiate” in preparation for their profession of perpetual religious vows. These confreres will remain with us until February 19.
