Spirit of collaboration and support in America



Interprovincial Novitiate of La Valla, Medellín

13/02/2015: Colombia

The La Valla Interprovincial Novitiate of the provinces of Norandina and Central America, opened a new stage, as it received novices from the Provinces of Central Mexico, Western Mexico and Southern Cross. This new experience shows a greater diversity in the new context of internationality and signals the spirit of collaboration and support in America.

Changes in formation processes of the postulancy in both provinces of Mexico and the adaptation of the formation process in Cruz del Sur, gives rise to a new experience of formation that supports a new relationship on the American Continent.

At present time, the first year novices are:

* Víctor Carrasco Villafán (Cruz del Sur)
* David Castillo Menchaca (México Occidental)
* Oscar Meade Moreno (México Central)
* Jonathan Montes de Oca Alquicira (México Central)

Their group’s name is: Mary, Mother of God.

Rolando, from Costa Rica, is in his second year of novitiate.

Two new Brothers join the formation team, Br. Juan Carlos Bolaños (Central America) and Br. Hugo Pablo Vázquez (Western Mexico). Br. José Miguel Caballero (Norandina) is the master of novices and the Br. Rafael remains the veteran formator.
