Six Colombians and two Brothers of the México Central Province officially entered the LaValla interprovincial novitiate in Medellin on Feb. 2.

The celebration included a Mass with the Provincial superiors of México Central and Norandina, Brothers José Sánchez and Cesar Rojas.

Other participants included provincial councillor of México Central Brother Justino Gómez; Brothers Laurentino Albalá and Orlando Escobar, provincial administrator and provincial councillor of Norandina; Brother Carlos Saúl Corzo, of the Barrio Santo Domingo community of Norandina.

During the ceremony, Brother César expressed a few words of encouragement labelling this as an “important stage of falling in love with Jesus Christ.” The Provincial Brothers placed the Marist cross on the new novices and the Brothers in charge of their formation gave them the book of the Constitutions.
