Investiture Ceremony in the Philippines 2018

The religious habit is a sign of a religious’ consecration and poverty.  The one who wears it makes evident the eschatological end of religious life.  (c.f. Const. 154) 

On September 14, 6 novices in our Province received their religious habits, marking the new stage of their consecration to God.  Besides members of our Religious Family from Caloocan and Taiwan, their family and friends also came from different provinces and abroad to participate in the solemn mass ceremony that took place at Mary, Mediatrix of All Grace Parish at Lipa City. 

Wearing the habits, they transmit to the world the eloquent message that heaven is like “a pearl of great price” that one would “go and sell all that he has and buys it” (c.f. Mt 13:45-46) .  May God bless our newly invested novices to live their religious life ardently and to work zealously for the salvation of souls. photo gallery
