Brother Miguel Fernandes Ribeiro, from the Brasil Centro-Sul province, made his perpetual profession on May 19 in the city of Doutor Camargo.

Together with relatives, brothers and friends, he made his definite consecration to God at the Institute of the Marist Brothers during a Mass celebrated in the parish of São Pedro Apóstolo.
“Definitively, through the perpetual yes, I confirmed the call that God made me, the one who loves me infinitely, the one who made me know his project and the one who consecrated me,” affirmed Brother Miguel.
“Like Mary, a missionary disciple, who did all that He said, I renew with vigor and encouragement my commitment as consecrated, responding to the Lord of the Mass to be attentive to the calls of the Marist Mission for me throughout the times to come,” he added.

Br. Miguel thanked all those present and was touched by the presence of Brother Pedro Danilo Trainotti, the first Marist Brother he met at six years of age and who encouraged him in his vocation.

During the ceremony, Br. Pedro congratulated Br Miguel, thanked God for his life and for the seriousness and dedication to the Christian life.
The provincial superior, Brother Benê Oliveira, accepted the vows of Br Miguel on behalf of the superior general.
“A Marist Brother is called by God, chosen by Mary and by the beloved disciple of the heart of Saint Marcellin Champagnat to live in the Church the gift of fraternity, a gift to be offered to the world, to be lived in community and witnessed in the relationship and the exercise of the mission with children and young people,” stated Brother Benê.
