On 23rd March 2014, Bro. Roque Rebito, sm renewed his vows during a Sunday mass held in Our Lady of Fatima Chapel, Matti Davao Del Sur. Fr. Pat Devlin, SM, Superior of the District of Asia received his vows and witnessed by Marist priests and lay faithful of Matti District. A simple breakfast was prepared after the mass.
After the celebration, Bro. Roque reflects on his renewal of vows:
“I am personally humbled every time I renew my vows to the Society of Mary and to the Church. This year is quite different knowing because I lost my father who is the first person who molded me to be a good Christian and who showed me that there is a greater happiness in serving others. But I know he is up there watching over and rejoicing on this special day. I am also grateful to those lives whom I encountered and to those who have given me the chance to share my faith and learn with their faith.”
Bro. Roque is about to complete his 2 year Marist Mission Experience. He will then go back to theological studies in June to continue his formation to Marist priesthood.
Prayers and blessings to you Bro.Roque!!
