On August 14, 2015 our novice Eumir Bautista, having completed his novitiate, professed his first vows of Chastity, Poverty and Obedience at St. Joseph’s Church in Winnipeg during the Divine Liturgy anticipating the Feast of the Dormition of the Mother of God. His vows were received by our Provincial – Rev. Fr. Larry Kondra, C.Ss.R. and witnessed by Fr. Michael Smolinski, C.Ss.R. and Fr. John Sianchuk, C.Ss.R. Eumir’s family travelled all the way from California to be there with him on that special day. We wish him abundance of God’s blessing and protection of Our Mother of Perpetual Help! Mnohaya i blahaya lita!
