First Profession in the Immaculate Conception Novitiate

11/07/2007: Philippines

“God has chosen you not because you are the most numerous…on the contrary, you are the least.” (Dt. 7.7-9) This was the theme of this year’s Liturgy of First Profession celebrated on May in the Philippine Province. In the presence of the Marist Brothers, families, lay mission partners and friends, Br. Joseph Adrian Cagampan, Br. Joey Ponteras, and Br. Mark Xyryx Sionosa vowed obedience, poverty and chastity, in accordance with our Marist Constitutions.

The Mass, presided over by Bishop Jose Colin Bagaforo, DD, auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Cotabato, was celebrated at the St. Charles Borromeo Church, in the parish where the Immaculate Conception Novitiate belongs. It started at 9:30 AM. Br. John Tan, Vice-Provicial, received the vows, on the behalf of Br. Manuel de Leon.

“Be an eagle, having the eye of an eagle,” Bishop Bagaforo told Brothers Joseph, Joey, and Mark during his homily, “farsighted – being able to see where you want to be in the future, and to see, even in the distance, the call of Jesus. Fix your eyes on the very person of Jesus.”

After the Eucharist, the guests proceeded to the novitiate house for the fellowship meal.
