On 22 July, 8 novices began the Novitiate in Yogya, in a ceremony presided over by Fr. Victor Gil, representing Fr. Provincial. Simultaneously another has started in Atambua. These days they will have their recollection for the beginning. Next week they will move to Atambua to continue there the novitiate, under the direction of Fr. Marcelino Leo, Master of Novices temporarily. When possible, they will travel to Cebu to continue there the Novitiate along with 10 other novices from Vietnam, the Philippines and East Timor.
