15 Simply Professed Friars renew vows, proceed to pastoral exposure

On June 9, 2022, fifteen simply-professed friars advance to the next formation year as they renewed this morning their religious vows in the Order of Saint Augustine. Their renewal of vows was accepted by Fr. Edgardo L. Lazo, OSA, the prior of the San Agustin Center of Studies Community, in the name of the Most Rev. Fr. Alejandro Moral Antón, OSA, prior general of the Order.

During the Mass for this year’s feast of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Eternal High Priest, Fr. Lazo exhorted the young friars to not neglect the witnessing and ministry demanded by their religious profession and their aspiration to Holy Orders, and not simply settle for the titles of “Fray” or “Brother” or, in the future, “Father.”
On June 10, ten of the friars had reported to different ministries of the Order for their 40-day pastoral exposure. They are:
