After years of seminary formation, four simply-professed friars have started their pastoral exposure to various parishes under the Province of Sto. Niño de Cebu as part of their initial formation before the solemn profession.
Fray Ariel A. Panimdim, OSA is assigned at the Santo Niño Mission Station in Pallas Valley, Ilocos Norte; Fray Anacleto M. Morales III, OSA is assigned at Santa Ana Parish, Burgos, Siargao Island, Surigao del Norte; Fray James Carlo M. Atienza, OSA is assigned to Saint Augustine Parish, Cogon-San Ignacio, Gubat, Sorsogon; and Fray Ronnel Ian M. Garcia is at Our Mother of Perpetual Help Parish, Poblacion, Guipos, Zamboanga del Sur.
Pastoral exposure is a six-month program that would immerse the friars in the daily life of a parish.
They started the program in September.
Let us continue to pray for our brothers in formation as they journey with us as brothers living harmoniously in one mind and heart intent upon God.
