For if I, the Lord and the Master, have washed your feet, ye must also wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you too may do as I have done with you (Jn 13:14-15)

November 30 was a big day in Brazil-Bolivia province. In addition to the solemn vows of the religious Jean Luc and Peter, at the same celebration at St. Mark’s Parish in Belo Horizonte, the promises, renewal of promises and definitive choice of members of the Piarist Fraternity of Brazil took place, in the presence of Fr. Provincial Javier Aguirregabiria, the Council of the Fraternity of Brazil and religious of other Piarist presences of Brazil.

After a period of discernment, five fraternals made their first promises in the Piarist fraternity; two fraternals made the renewal of their promises; and six fraternales made their final choice in the Piarist fraternity.

It is a blessing for the Pious Schools to have people who share the charism and the Piarist mission and commit themselves to continue on that path.

Let us ask God to arouse more vocations, religious and lay people, to follow up on the journey of disciples-missionaries of the Kingdom, through the charism of Piety and Letters.
