On the feast day of St. Joseph, 19 March 2021, in a simple yet solemn Eucharistic celebration, 06 novices [05 from INB and 01 from INP] submitted their applications for their first religious profession. Father Clarence Martis presided over the feast day mass. During the homily, Father Martis highlighted the qualities of St. Joseph and asked the novices to be patient, hardworking and caring like St. Joseph as they take steps to become signs and bearers of God’s love to the world.

During thr offertory, the novices submitted their applications to the Novice Master Father Wyman Gonsalves. The novices have been continuously accompanied and guided in their discernment process for the last ten months by Father Gonsalves through frequent conferences and spiritual direction.
