Alberione Hall, Makati City— On June 20, 2014, three members of the Institute of Holy Family temporarily professed according to their state of life the evangelical vows of conjugal chastity, poverty, obedience and fidelity to the Roman Pontiff. The profession happened in a Eucharistic Celebration presided by Fr. Jose Aripio, SSP, Provincial Superior of Society of St. Paul, Philippine-Macau Province.
They neo-professed are Dolores Acaya, ISF, Pascual Eslava, IHF and Aurora Martin, IHF.
Five (5) Aspirants, one (1) Postulant and three (3) Novices were received by the Provincial Superior to their specific stage of formation before the Holy Mass and fourteen (14) temporary professed members renewed their vows after the profession.
IHF Formator, Fr. Dominador Guzman, Jr., SSP, in his homily, expressed his gratitude for the growing number of vocations of the Institute of the Holy Family. He added that, as we celebrate the Year of the Laity, the Pauline Family has indeed been blessed with the richness of lay vocations through the aggregated institutes whose zeal of living and sharing the charism of Blessed James Alberione were ever-active and unwavering.
Sumptuous lunch capped the celebration.
