In solemn commemoration of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the St. Matthew Province welcomed seven (7) new Lectors and three (3) new Acolytes on September 8, 2021. The Fr. Di Francia Center of Studies community hosted the Eucharistic liturgy, which was presided over by Fr. Orville Cajigal, RCJ, the Provincial Superior. While ensuring strict observance of safety and health protocols, threats of a tropical storm (Jolina/Conson), a typhoon (Kiko/Chanthu), and the prevailing pandemic restrictions did not halt the celebration of the rite of institution to the ministries. May our Mother, Mary, the tender Bambinella, watch over and help form these young men according to her Son's Sacred Heart, the twin of her own Immaculate Heart.
