24 novices in Matola



11 new novices in the province of Southern Africa

08/04/2017: Mozambique

On April 1, a celebration was held for 11 new first year novices who entered the novitiate of the Marist province of Southern Africa, located in Matola, Mozambique. 

There are a total of 24 novices with this group of 11 (which includes four from Angola, one from Zambia, four from Malawi and two from Mozambique) and 13 second year novices.

All these first year novices spent their last year of postulancy in Malawi, in the “Champagnat” postulancy.

Four brothers who are their formators are accompanying them in Matola. They include Brother Emmanuel Mwanlirenji, of Zimbabwe; Br Patrick Bwalya, of Zambia; Br António Pisco, of Portugal; and Br Óscar Martín Vicario, of Spain.

The celebration of the entry into the novitiate was a simple and family act, but which also had the necessary solemnity. 

The presence of the provincial superior, Brother Norbert Mwila, in the novitiate enhanced the celebration.

The nine novices lived with intensity the moment of their “taking the habit” and the gesture of receiving the Constitutions, a key reference for their new stage.
