ANTIPOLO, RIZAL—The Recoletos family of the Philippines flocked to the St. Ezekiel Moreno Novitiate House to celebrate the day of the Order. This big day also marked the opening of the year-long celebration of the 25th anniversary of the inauguration of the novitiate building.
Fray Julius Marcos, the vicar of the province, officiated the Holy Eucharist with over 20 concelebrating priests and led the brothers in their renewal of religious vows. Just before the 10:00 A.M. mass, Fray Emilio Quilatan gave an inspiring talk on the history of the novitiate of the Recoletos in the Philippines. More power to the Recollection! Vamos, Recoletos!
