Postulants Start Integration Stage at RogaMina
Eleven Filipino, Indonesian and Vietnamese Postulants of St. Matthew Province are at the Rogationist community of RogaMina in Iloilo on March 14-31 for the final stage of the Postulancy program called the Integration. This Stage aims to make the synthesis of the learnings acquired in the past ten months through the modular classes, in house courses, individual dialogues and group processing leading to the application to the admission to the Novitiate. Fr. Marcelino Diaz RCJ facilitates the program with a special emphasis on the understanding and experience of the contemplative dimension of the Rogationist charism. Fr. Jose Maria Ezpeleta RCJ and Fr. Joseph Arcano RCJ, Postulant Director and Assistant Director respectively accompanied them in the first week. The first two days were dedicated to the visiting cultural and religious heritage sites of the Provinces of Iloilo, namely: Spanish-era churches of Jaro Cathedral, and in the towns of Sta. Barbara and Molo; and the Trappist Monastery in Guimaras. They will spend the Holy Week and Easter at RogaMina.
