Seven novices join the International Novitiate of Tudella



The Institute’s second largest novitiate

21/05/2018: Sri Lanka

The recent entry of five new novices at Tudella, Sri Lanka, adds to a total of 19 making it the Institute’s second largest novitiate after the Marist Brothers Formation Centre in Kumasi, Ghana, which currently has 26.

The International Novitiate of Tudella, in the South Asia province, began its programme on May 3 and received Liu Cong, Tran Long, Le Van Nghi, But Van Duc, Le Van Duy, Nguyen Van Phuc and Le Danh Hai officially on May 11. They are all from two countries of the Marist District of Asia.

The novitiate includes, for the second-year novices, a three-month placement in an apostolic community from May 15 – Aug. 10. Later, after making their first vows, they begin their post-novitiate formation in Manila, Philippines, at the Marist Asian Pacific Center (MAPAC).

On May 13, the 12 second year novices – from Sri Lanka, East Timor, Melanesia and another country of the Marist District of Asia – were commissioned for their apostolic community experience.
