A member of the Missionary Sisters of the Holy Face of Jesus (MSHFJ) on Monday (January 24) professed her perpetual vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience in the presence of Bishop Buenaventura Famadico and some clergy at the convent chapel in San Pablo City. Sister Carmela Vergara Navarez, MSHFJ, 28, hails from Alaminos, Laguna. She graduated BSBA in Financial Management and served as a facilitator in the Catechetical Ministry of Our Lady of the Pillar Parish before entering the convent. The MSHFJ is a religious congregation of the diocesan right founded in 1977 by the first bishop of San Pablo Most Reverend Pedro Bantigue with Mo. Mary Therese Vicente.

On the other hand, seminarians from the San Pablo Theological Formation House in Tagaytay received their ministries on January 25, Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul. Second Year Theology seminarians (Mark Togonon, Erwin Gabion, Don Framil, Val de Silva, Kristian Amarante, and Kevin Macandile) were instituted to the ministry of Lectors. Third Year Theology seminarians (Sebastian Ambrocio, Crisanto Arciaga, Gian Clase, Christian Completo, Mark de Villa, Renzo Muega, Christian Pajutan, Mark Ragasa, and John Sedano) were instituted to the ministry of Acolytes. Fourth Year Theology seminarians (Niño Acero, Daniel Bague, Oliver de Luna, Lanz Domingo, Edilberto Dionio SMITH, Ronrick Villaran) were admitted to the candidacy for Holy Orders. The celebration was presided by Bishop Buenaventura Famadico along with the seminary priest-formators headed by the rector Fr. Edwin Lusterio. The liturgical ministries of lectorate and acolytate, as well as the admission to the candidacy for Holy Orders, are necessary steps towards priesthood, as mandated by Canon Law (Can. 1034 & 1035).
