Filipino Xaverian Takes Final Vows in Sierra Leone, West Africa

I remember when Patrick Santianez first discerned about entering our congregation and his first entrance into the Pre-novitiate program years ago. Today we have an opportunity to see this generous heart give his life to the mission of the Church as a Xaverian Missionary, and how much more appropriate could the venue be then in Sierra Leone. Let us pray for Brother Patrick who will now prepare for ordination to the Diaconate, and for all young Xaverian Missionaries preparing for first or final vows in these months, more than 25.
