On his homily, he imparted to the young men the love and commitment that they should have as members of the Confraternity. He also reminded them that their duties are not only limited on serving the altar but also in doing manual works in maintaining the beautification and cleanliness of the parish.
After the homily, the Rite of Investiture and Renewal followed and as the investees donned their sutanas they declared to the Lord and His people their intention and accepted by the Parish Priest himself.
These young men who have answered God’s call to serve the Lord in his altar, underwent series of formation sessions every Sunday afternoon as part of their preparation and training is to know the essence of the liturgical celebrations and assisting the priest.
