In solemn commemoration of the first coming of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament to remain in the institute of St. Hannibal Mary Di Francia, through the Feast of July the First, Fr. Orville Cajigal, RCJ, the Provincial Superior, presided over the Holy Mass for the community of the St. Hannibal Rogate Center, during which two Filipino candidates were formally accepted to the Postulancy Center, upon presentation of Fr. Jessie Martirizar, RCJ, its Director.
Their Vietnamese counterparts will be formally accepted in their country and will initially have their formative experiences there until the pandemic travel restrictions are lifted. The liturgy of July 1, 2021, which was participated in by the incoming and outgoing Novices from Silang, Cavite, some members of the Union of Prayer for Vocations, the daily mass-goers and a number of benefactors - following the prescribed health protocols - ended with a prolonged Eucharistic Adoration until midday.
After a period of prayerful anticipation, the Blessed Sacrament once again took possession of His Tabernacle, where His abiding real presence constantly shines.
