The St. Matthew Province, in the Eucharistic liturgy celebrating the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, presided over by Fr. Herman Abcede, twelve (12) new religious made the first profession of their vows, at the chapel of the St. Anthony's Boys Village in Silang, Cavite. Seven are from the Philippines and five are from Vietnam. In the same celebration, he admitted to the Novitiate seven (7) new Novices, all Filipinos, and entrusted them to Fr. Ulyses Angus, the Novice Master.
May St. Hannibal intercede for these young men, that they may constantly be aware of the beauty and the responsibilities of their complete self-offering to God, through the evangelical counsels.
