Tagaytay City – It was with great joy and thanksgiving for God’s goodness and blessings as two young women, Sr. Marial Jane Niez Quiamco and Sr. Arnie Lacida Patagoc, were invested last May 30, 2018 at 5:00 pm in Our Lady of Carmel Novitiate Chapel upon the completion of their postulant year. The Ceremony was truly blessed and graced with the presence of Mother Lucena Antipala, AR Council, the Formators, the Sisters from Tahanang Talangpaz, Tagaste Retreat House and the Novitiate communities.
The newly initiated novices said “truly we are Novices;, new and willing, beginners with a hope to persevere in God’s love. The lesson which we should hold on is that, if at first we will not succeed, we still untiringly try and try again in this journey of following the Lord. Seeing the wonderful works of God in our life, it is always a fresh start to renew our love for Him. As newly initiated Novices, building up a relationship on a fertile ground, guarantee our desire in building up our tomorrow. If we are with God there is always a rainbow of goodness waiting for us all.”
They were grateful to God for allowing them to experience the life an Augustinian Recollect Sister.
