Brother Jean Baptiste RAKOTOMAHEFA from the Madagascar Province made perpetual profession on Sunday, August 25 at Sacred Heart Church, Ambohimandroso-Gara, in his native region. Bishop José Alfredo Caires de NOBRIEGA, Bishop of the Diocese of Mananjary, presided over the Eucharist. To mark his union with the Lord, Jean Baptiste chose the biblical verse "Lord, you know all things, you know that I love you” (John 21:17). The beautiful liturgy, animated by the church choir, some brothers and students of St. Joseph's College of Antsirabe, expressed the joy of his gift and consecration to the Lord.

During his homily, the bishop emphasized the importance of the Marist charism and its contribution to the life and mission of the universal Church. He compared vocation to a garden that draws its beauty from the uniqueness of the color and fragrance of each flower.

After Mass, guests gathered in the parish hall for a shared meal.

Brother Jean Baptiste comes from a large traditionally Christian family. In fact, his uncle is a Marist Brother and the family counts other religious, priests and nuns. He did his novitiate in Save, Rwanda and his scholasticate at MIC, Nairobi. Ha has been a member of the Betroka community (a hill town in southwest Madagascar) for three years now. He serves as bursar and devotes part of his time to teaching as well as leading the Madagascar Marist Youth group (JMM).
