Cagayan de Oro City Yesterday, August 14, 2021, at Lumbia Novitiate House, our five postulants – Kim Almacen, Ardiomer Amabao, Joric Gabasa, Amante Julaton, and Leanard Tadena – officially entered the canonical year of novitiate.

It was Fr. Reynaldo Olan who presided over the liturgy of the first vespers for the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. Before the rites for the entrance to novitiate, Fr. Marvin Tadena, the novice master, read the message of Fr. Luciano Squizzato.

Our PSDP brothers and sisters here in Cagayan de Oro were present during the ceremony.

Let us pray for our dear novices for their perseverance in following the call of Jesus through the example and teachings of St. John Calabria.
