Beginning of Novitiate in India (brothers)

July 20 was a great day to welcome Susanto Badaseth, a new member, into our Congregation as a novice in the Region of India.  It was truly a moment of joy to have this new member in the community. Fr. Felipe Lazcano, as novice master, and the Regional Superior, Fr. Ajith Kumar, along with the whole community, welcomed Susanto to the novitiate.

The rite of initiation into religious life began with the beautiful hymn "In the Lord is my hope". Susanto shared his willingness to enter the novitiate to dedicate his life to the Congregation of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary. At the end of the celebration, Fr. Felipe gave the Constitutions of the Congregation Susanto and Fr. Raja Sebastian, the Master's socius, presented him with a cross with the symbol of the Congregation. Also present were two sisters from the Congregation of Fatima, who are currently living in the house and helping in the first steps of the new school.

The celebration ended with the singing of the "Salve Regina". After this, everyone gathered in the refectory to congratulate Susanto and wish him all the best in the community of Dangadighila (Kolkata, India). At the end of the dinner, Susanto thanked and prayed for everyone.
