Rites of Reception and Profession - Our Lady of the Assumption TOC Community (Guinobatan)

The Guinobatan community (Our Lady of the Assumption TOC Community) held its reception and profession rites on April 10 at 7:00 a.m. The con-celebrated mass was presided by Rev. Fr. Roberto Noel Rosas, OCarm (Main Celebrant and Homilist) and Rev. Fr. Rolando Panesa (Parish Priest and Local Spiritual Assistant).

Two candidates were received in the novitiate, two made their temporary profession and three members made their final profession to the Order. The relics of St. Therese of Lisieux and St. Clare of Assisi were exposed during the celebrations and after which veneration followed.

A sumptuous lunch was prepared and afterwards a small tour was made around the place by visiting the Poor Clares Monastery and the Carmelite Nuns of the Holy Trinity Monastery where an oratory in honor of the Divine Mercy is being erected.
