Tagaytay, Philippines. On Saturday 30 March 2019, the Congregation of the Brothers of Charity welcomed 15 young people who received the habit and became novices of the Brothers of Charity during an oblation ceremony. The novices are from Vietnam, Papua New Guinea, India, Rwanda, and Burundi.
Bro. René Stockman, Superior General, was with them for one week in preparation for the reception of the habit. During that week, he gave a retreat and concluded his visit with the actual acceptance of the novices into the Congregation. We warmly welcome these 15 young people to the Congregation and hope that they have a fruitful novitiate training at our international novitiate house in Tagaytay.
