Canonical Visit to Sta. Cruz, Laguna

On September 12, the National Council composed of Fr. Noel Rosas, Sis. Sally Castro, Sis. Cynthia Penalosa, Bro. Ruel Santos, and Sis. Mila Exconde went to the capital of the province Laguna to visit the local community there. Despite the rains in the morning, the visit pushed through.

The visit was held at the St. Joseph's chapel, Sta. Cruz, Laguna. When the group arrived, a sumptuous merienda was given and the visitation was held afterwards. The visit ended half past noon wherein questions centered on communications and formation were discussed at the open forum.

After lunch, reception, profession, and admission rites for novices, professed members, and aspirants were held at the chapel.
