Novitiate Fr. Dehon – First Profession of Vows

Sunday, May 13, 2012, was a special day for the newly created Philippine Region. On this day three Novices: Bro. Nathaniel Robilla, Bro. Rogereve Pausanos and Bro. Junlou Arcayos professed their first vows of poverty, chastity and obedience and in this way became members of the Congregation of the Priests of the Sacred Heart.

The ceremony of first profession took place during the Holy Eucharist celebrated at the Novitiate Fr. Dehon in Lower Lucoban, Dumalinao, Zamboanga del Sur. The vows were accepted by the Regional Superior Fr. Franciszek Pupkowski, SCJ.

The celebration was attended by SCJs from different communities, the assistant parish priest from Dimataling, religious sisters, members of the families of the newly professed confreres and friends.

We entrust these new members of the Philippine Region to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and support them with our prayers.
