The Rogationist of the Heart of Jesus Mission Station of Maumere, Indonesia celebrates on August 24 the Feast of the Apostle St. Bartholomew with the blessing of the Rogate Spring Water Station led by Fr. Dexter Prudenciano, RCJ, the Vicar Provincial of St. Matthew Province and the Councilor in-charge of charity and missions. Fr. Elmer Dula and Fr. Ferdinandus Tanga joined him in the rite of blessing. The celebration is attended by religious congregations and muslim communities.
The Rogate Spring Water Station was introduced many years ago and it provides clean drinking water to many Religious Institutes, Schools, Parishes and families in the city center of Maumere. It is a source of income for the ordinary expenses of the Rogationist Seminary.
This endeavor, both in the initial stage and in its upgrade, has been financed by the Missioni Rog Onlus of the Central Missionary Office in Rome. The project was supervised by Bro. Marcelino Lavente and assisted by Rogationist religious and the seminarians of Maumere.
