Tagaytay City- On May 31, 2023, a momentous event took place at the Tagaste Retreat House as the sun rose on a new day. The air was filled with a sense of anticipation and reverence as family, friends, and fellow religious congregants gathered to witness the First Profession of Vows of two extraordinary individuals.
In a heartfelt ceremony that commenced at 10:00 AM, Sr. Cristy Sialola Pantilgone hailing from the picturesque Pinamungajan, Cebu, and Sr. Rolyn Topacio Cruz from the vibrant Paranaque City, took a significant step in their spiritual journeys. Surrounded by their loved ones and guided by faith, they made their First Profession of Vows.
Presiding over this sacred occasion was the venerable Fr. Bernard Amparado, OAE, whose wisdom and guidance have been instrumental in shaping the spiritual paths of these two dedicated individuals.
