4 Novices Begin Novitiate Program

For the first time in four years we have postulants going into the novitiate. The last was Br Doan Nguyen (now stationed in Auckland) and then it is back a further 20 years since Fr David Hore (Colombo) was in the novitiate. After our four postulants from Viet Nam finished their five months English Study and postulancy in Perth they arrived in Lipa (Philippines) March 30.
