Investiture of 8 novices on the day of Exaltation of the Cross 2017

On September 14, 2017 during the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross, 8 novices from our Province received the habit which marks a new stage of their religious life. Previously on September 12, the feast day of the Holy Name of Mary, they had received new names of titles of Mary in their own languages (Pidgin-Papua New Guinea, Tagalog-Philippines, Malay-Malaysia, and Chinese). On the day of their investiture, the Holy Mass was celebrated by the Fr. Miguel Soler, the Provincial Superior of the Institute of the Incarnate Word (IVE), together with concelebrants from IVE. Some families of the novices came to participate the Holy Mass celebration from their own province (in Philippines) and even from abroad (Hong Kong and Malaysia). In the Holy Mass, 2 postulants also received the Cross of Matara as a sign of their dedication to follow Christ.Please pray for their perseverance and sanctification, and the grace to be docile to the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. more pictures
