Admission to the Novitiate

On March 25, 2007, a batch of 11 Postulants was admitted to the Novitiate. The ceremony took place at the chapel of the Holy Infant Seminary in Pagadian City and was presided by the District Superior Fr. Rino Venturin. It was also attended by members of the local community of Dumalinao who joined the concelebrated Mass.

The new Novices started their 14-month long Novitiate, the time of preparation to the religious life and first profession of vows which will take place in May 2008. At the moment there are 16 Novices including the old batch of 5 who will make their first vows on May 13, 2007.
