First professions in the Province of México Occidental

On the 17th June, the day of the Lord, in the city of Morelia (Mexico), our Institute received two new brothers among its members: Luis Fernando Delgado Esparza and César Iván Vargas Graciano, by their profession of the vows of the evangelical counsels: chastity, poverty and obedience.
The religious ceremony took place in the Chapel of the Visitation of Mary, a building dating from the beginning of the nineteen century which was part of the cloister of the Sisters of the Visitation. Our new brothers pronounced their vows into the hands of Brother Víctor Manuel Preciado Ramirez, Provincial of México Occidental, and in the presence of more than four hundred people who were willing witnesses to the yes of César and Luis Fernando.
With this celebration, the newly professed have taken a further step in the process of their initial formation in Marist consecrated life. They made their novitiate under the direction of Brother Antonio Cavazos Bueno in the interprovincial novitiate of the Assumption in Morelia, Michoacán.
Brother Luis Fernando is a former student of the college that the brothers run in Aguascalientes, from where he originally came; Brother César Iván is a former student of Morelos College, in Tepatitlán.
We invite you to be united in thanksgiving for the blessings that the Lord has granted us with the vocation of these two brothers; let us continue to ask that He grant us vocations from his heart.
