Preparatory course for perpetual profession

In the coming weeks some young people will enter definitively in the Congregation of St. Joseph with their perpetual vows. Here’s how they prepared for them…

This year we were a group of six Josephan confreres students from different countries of the world, to participate in the course in preparation for perpetual profession (six, all Indian, took part in the one in April-May). The course took place between June and July this year in Rome at the General House. The participants were: Melques and Saji from India, Hugo from Argentina, Luciano from Brazil, Florin and Lazar Mihai from Romania. During the course we had several times of study and workshops on the history and spirituality of our congregation, visiting the Murialdine places and the Josephan institutions in Turin and other cities, times of prayer, adoration, sharing of experiences by each brother in their province etc. The course ended with a retreat animated by Fr. Rosario Avino who helped us make beautiful reflections on our Josephan vocation. We thank the Lord for giving us this opportunity to deepen the knowledge of our congregation and to reflect on the gift of the Josephan vocation. Special thanks to Fr. Fidel A. who organized the course, and followed us closely. Thanks also to all the Josephan confreres who guided and animated several moments of study and sharing. Thanks a lot!
