First Profession Ceremony on 25th April, 2017.

“ Rejoice, Rejoice and render thanks to God, for He has done marvels in us” (R.L.1). It is indeed a day of rejoicing for us Montfort Brothers of St.Gabriel. 19 of our young men from 5 Provinces have said ‘Yes’ to the Lord, like Mary our Blessed Mother, by taking the 3 Vows of Poverty, Chastity and Obedience in Montfort School’s Chapel, Yercaud, on 25th April. Rev. Dr. Singaroyan, the Bishop of Salem diocese, was the main celebrant. The Provincial Superiors, Bro. Pratap Reddy B. of Hyderabad, Bro. M. K. Devassy of North-East, Bro. Franky Noronha of Pune, Bro. Mariannan of Trichy and Bro. George P. J. of Yercaud, graced the occasion, received the Vows and gave their blessings.

There were more than 700 people present for the Ceremony. Our Brothers preparing for the Final commitment added glitter to the whole ceremony by their melodious singing. The Community of Montfort School led by Bro. Augustine Novello, made all the arrangements for making this event a memorable one. We are immensely grateful to Bro. Sebastian Olikal and Bro. Varghese Koonanmavu for their co-operation in making this function successful.

We had heavy showers soon after the function. These are the showers of blessings we received from above. God is so pleased with us that He provides and showers His abundant blessings.
