Canonical Visit to Bulacan

On the feast of the martyrdom of St. John the Baptist, the representatives of the National Council went to Guiguinto, Bulacan for the canonical/fraternal visit to the seven communities there including the TOC community at the Immaculate Conception Seminary. The visit was held at the Carmelite Formation House of the monastery. The visit started with a concelebrated mass wherein Sis. Diana Satiago, TOC undergo the rite of Final Profession. Also, all professed members of the TOC renewed their profession and the decree of canonical foundation for the TOC community of St. Mary Magdalene de Pazzi was read.

After the Mass, an agape was served and after that each communities reported about their status and their activities. All in all the visit was a succesful one. It ended at around 3 pm and Fr. Noel had a short audience with the nuns afterwards.
