October 13, 2014 - Dear ROGATIONIST Fathers & Brothers in the world,
Greetings of Peace and Joy !
The Rogationists of the Heart of Jesus, St. Matthew Province, will hold its 1st Provincial Chapter on December 8-13, 2014 at the Oasis of Prayer, (Center of Spirituality), Lalaan 2, Silang, Cavite, Philippines.
The provincial chapter is a very important event in the life of the Congregation, particularly of the St. Matthew Province. May I request of your prayers for the success of this event and for our participants to come to the Assembly with the attentive and open hearts ready to listen, discern and accept the challenges that will come along the way.
Our 1st Provincial Chapter has chosen the theme “Novum Fecit Dominus” in order to highlight the new realities that come out in the life journey of the province.
With your support we will be confident responding to the challenges of the times and making the “Rogate” become ever more relevant in the life of the Church and in the Society we are in.
Invoking the Holy Spirit, the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary and of our Founder, St. Hannibal Mary Di Francia, we hope to chart our way for a more responsive and prophetic witnessing and missioning in the Church to collaborate in making God’s Kingdom more visible in our society today.
Sincerely yours, FR. HERMAN ABCEDE, RCJ Provincial
