First religious profession of Br. Gerson Alexander Pooc Asig

Brother Gerson Alexander Pooc Asig, of the Province of Central America, celebrated his first religious profession on July 15 in Guatemala. The Provincial, Brother Hipólito Pérez Gómez, received the vows on behalf of Brother Ernesto Sánchez, Superior General.

Brother Gerson, who has committed himself to being a Marist Brother, expressed his feelings at this fundamental moment in his life in this way: “Being here today makes me feel grateful. The motivations that impel me to choose this lifestyle as a Brother are: the desire to continue to know myself, to give myself in an authentic way to the construction of the Kingdom of God in community“.
