"Cast your nets, and you will find"
On April 26, 2019, five novices took their first temporary vows: the brothers Trivosa Siby, Paulus Benediktus Prawin, and Yohanes Kristoforus Andianus from Indonesia, and the brothers Eurico De Fatima Amaral and Dos Santos Pires from East Timor. The festive event took place in Pematang Siantar, Indonesia.
The theme of the feast was “Cast your nets, and you will find” (John 21: 6). The choice for this theme was the result of reflection of the five newcomers inspired by the gospel of John. The theme is a symbol of their faith in a God who is intrinsically merciful and who will always support his people, especially the little ones and the poor. The Eucharist was led by Fr. Anton Moa of the diocese of Pangkal Pinang. He is also a teacher of the CMM novices and staff member of the Major Seminary St. Peter in Pematang Siantar.
The young brothers have now all been sent to one of the CMM communities to start their apostolate. We wish them God’s blessing in their life and work as Brothers CMM.
