Cagayan de Oro city: It is with great joy and gratitude to the Lord that the whole PSDP Congregation welcomes its four newly professed religious brothers (3 Indians and 1 Filipino): Bro. Jinto George (Ind), Bro. Linto Joseph (Ind), Bro. Jibin Jose (Ind) and Bro. Marc Yape (Fil); and one newly triennial professed religious brother (Filipino): Bro. Raymond Balaod.
After completing their year of Novitiate under the guidance of their Novice Master, Fr. Joseph Pasini, these newly first professed religious brothers did their Religious Profession before our Casante, Fr. Miguel Tofful, at Lumbia Novitiate House, San Isidro, Lumbia, Cagayan de Oro city. Likewise having recited with faith and devotion his words of definitive life oblation to the Lord, Bro. Raymond vowed himself to live in poverty, chastity and obedience as means for him to follow the Lord more closely, more dearly and more intimately.
The newly professed Indian brothers will go back to India on May 28, 2017 to begin a new community experience as young religious while both the Filipino brothers will remain here in Cagayan de Oro city to study theology and work for our social activity.
