Encounter of the Religious in Practical Training
posted by Bro. Christian Allan De Sagun, RCJ
The Religious in Practical Training (RPT) gathered for their encounter with the Provincial Superior. This initiative is also an opportunity for the religious to share among themselves their experiences in the different communities of the St. Matthew Province (SMP). For this year’s theme, they have chosen to focus on "Embracing my Rogationist – SMP Vocation and Community as a Gift and Responsibility". This also shed upon on the theme for the Year of the Youth in the Philippines of being “Beloved... Gifted... and Empowered...”
This year's batch of RPT is composed of Bro. Jeffrey Salvador, RCJ, Bro. Queenan Louie Noquiao, RCJ, Bro. Alvin Jasper Cruz, RCJ, Bro. Philip Alensolurin, RCJ, Bro. Peter Nhan, Bro. Gilbert Ben Cantarona, RCJ, Bro. Augustine Chau, Bro. Peter Do, RCJ, Bro. Joseph Kien, and Bro. Peter Carnecky, RCJ (of the St. Anthony de Padua Province – Italy Center-North). Fr. Ariel Tecson, RCJ, the Provincial Councilor on Religious Life, Formation and Vocation Ministry, served as the facilitator of the gathering which lasted from September 30 until October 5, 2019.
