On Sunday 11th May, the new novitiate for the provinces of South Asia, Australia (Timor Leste) and the District of Asia commenced with the official ceremony for the reception of the new novices: Pham Thuan and Bao Nguyen (Vietnam), Khan Rohail Khan and Anthony Qummer (Pakistan) and Dulaj Chaturanga (Sri Lanka). The novice master, Br Nicholas presented the novices to the Brother Provincial (South Asia), Br Shanti who formally asked them their intentions. During the ceremony each novice was presented with a bible, a copy of the Constitutions and the Marist Cross. Each novice then made a consecration to Mary.

Following the ceremony a group of Brothers and lay Marists, including Peter McNamara (Australia), joined the novices and the novitiate team for a celebratory dinner.
