Novitiate beginsFather Astor Rodriguez posted this slideshow on the Facebook page of the Vincentian Vocation.

Technically called “reception into the Internal Seminary of the Congregation”, popularly it is referred to a reception into the Novitiate.

The four young men were blessed to be welcomed by Fr. Greg Gay, Superior General, who presented them each with a copy of our Constitutions and Statues.

Forty five priests, 5 brothers, 1 Daughter of Charity and various lay collaborators joined in the celebration.
