On 3rd June 2o13, the extension house of college seminarians in Davao was blessed by Fr. Pat Devlin, SM, District superior of the Philippines. Present in the occasion is Fr. Kevin Mowbray, SM, General Bursar of the Society of Mary from Rome. His presence meant a lot as he was one of the first Marists who came to the Philippines to implant the Society of Mary in 1981. This desire of implantation continues today with Filipino Marists handling the formation and new batch of seminarians training to be Marists.
The members of the formation community as well lay partners were present during the blessing. A simple and lovely dinner was shared after the blessing. Thank you for your prayers and support to the Marist formation community.
