On Friday, May 4, our brother Janan Fernando made his First Profession of Religious Vows together with six other novices from different units at the Divino Amor Shrine (Redemptorist Parish), Lipa Batangas, Philippines.
Revd Fr. Ariel Lubi, the Provincial Superior of the Vice-Province of Manila was the Chief Celebrant. Revd Fr. Edmund Nixon, The Provincial Superior of the Province of Oceania delivered the homily. Many relatives and friends of the novices traveled to witness the ceremony. Members of the choir at Divino Amor parish provided the music. The entire congregation was invited to lunch afterward in the novitiate indoor basketball court.
Janan will soon begin his theological studies at SATMI, Davao. We give thanks to God for the life and vocation of our beloved brother Janan Fernando C.Ss.R and we continue to invoke God’s blessings on his journey of life as a Redemptorist missionary.
