Final Vows 2022

5 brothers professed Final Vows

A joyful congratulations to our five brothers on their Solemn Profession of Vows, which was held on August 8, 2022, at 4:00 pm at the San Agustin Center of Studies, Quezon City.

Fray Ariel A. Panimdim, OSA (Digos, Davao del Sur), Fray Anacleto M. Morales III, OSA (Isabela, Negros Occidental), Fray James Carlo M. Atienza, OSA (San Pedro, Laguna), Fray Jan Mark A. Placido, OSA (Sto. Tomas, Davao del Norte), and Fray Ronnel Ian M. Garcia, OSA (Gubat, Sorsogon) made their final vows before the Very Rev. Fray Andres Rivera Jr., OSA, Prior Provincial of the Augustinian Province of Santo Nino de Cebu – Philippines.

A few hours before their solemn profession, they had a group prayer at the Oratory of the Professorium and blessed their black religious habit to symbolize their acceptance to the Augustinian Order.

In addition to their spiritual preparation, they also spent a five-day retreat at the Dambana Eucharistic Hermitage, Botolan, Zambales, from July 15 to 19, 2022. Rev. Fray Ericson Borre, OSA was their retreat master.

Augustinian friars from the different parts of the country and religious clerics, joined in jubilation as they attended the solemn vows together with the newly solemn professed friars’ families and friends.

The friars will then return to their community assignments and serve in their capacity to the various ministries and apostolates of the Province after the solemn profession.

Before their Solemn Profession, the brothers were already assigned to their respective assignments last June 1, 2022. Fray Atienza is assigned at Saint Augustine Parish Community (Gubat); Fray Garcia is at Our Mother of Perpetual Help Parish Community (Socorro); Fray Morales is at Mati Community; Fray Panimdim is at Guipos Residence; and Fray Placido at Saguday Residence.

Let us continue to pray for these brothers as they will continue to discern for their priesthood ordination in the coming months.
