Interprovincial Novitiate of Passo Fundo



Celebration of entry to the novitiate

02/03/2013: Brazil

Eight young postulants have just entered the interprovincial novitiate of  Brasil at Passo Fundo, Rio de Janeiro, to begin an experience of religious life for the next two years. The cermony marking the opening of this stage of formation took place in the novitiate garden at the beginning of February, and it marked at the same time the sending of the 2nd year novices into the communities for their apostolic experience.

The eight postulants who have entered the novitiate are : Charles Alves (Brasil Centro-Sul), Deomar Biondo (Rio Grande do Sul), Gustavo Ribeiro (Brasil Centro-Norte), Jean Arcari (Rio Grande do Sul), Jean Marcos (Brasil Centro-Sul), José Sotero (Brasil Centro-Norte), Leonardo Piovesan (Rio Grande do Sul) and Márcio Castilho (Brasil Centro-Sul)

The celebration, presided over by Fr Renato Biasi and animated by Br Rubens Falqueto, brought together Brothers and friends from round about. Also present were the Provincials of Marist Brasil: Brothers Wellington Medeiros Mousinho (Brasil Centro-Norte), Joaquim Sperandio (Brasil Centro-Sul), and Inacio Nestor Etges (Rio Grande do Sul).
