Manila – On May 26th, Seminarians Dennis Barquilla and Gilbert Bea were accepted to the Novitiate by Fr. Battista Omodei, SdC, the Provincial Councilor of the Divine Providence Province in a solemn mass concelebrated by the Guanellian priests. The Novitiate is the third stage of formation during which the candidates of a religious institute undergo training and preparation to help discern their call to religious life before they take vows. Fr. Charlton Viray, SdC will be their Novice Master and spiritual guide; giving them direction and helping them to deepen their relationship with the Lord. The Guanellian Sisters, GLM, Benefactors, family, friends and the ‘Good Children’ participated in the celebration. Let us pray for these novices that they come to know Christ more deeply as they journey through this phase of formation. Congratulations!
