Our 3 novices, Brs Constantino Barreto Amaral, Moises Soares and Manuel Xavier Gonzaga, made their first profession of vows as Carmelites on 14 December. They made their vows at Mass in Hera, Timor-Leste at the end of their Novitiate year. Fr Carlito da Costa Araújo, Provincial Delegate for Timor-Leste, received their vows in place of Fr Paul Cahill (Prior Provincial) who was unable to travel to Timor due to COVID restrictions. Constantino, Moises and Manuel join our 29 other brothers in first vows. The total number of those in formation is now 37. Congratulations, Brothers!
