It was a general atmosphere of peace, in the prayer, silence and meditation, in the company of their fellow Brother Aspirants and in the presence of the Capuchin Brothers, immersed in the wonderment of nature – all 10 of our Brother Aspirants have experienced in Bugallon, Pangasinan for their intensification program from May 2-18, 2017.
7 of the Aspirants are from Luzon, comprising the provinces of Bulacan, Cavite, Pampanga, Pangasinan and 1 from Quezon City, whereas 3 of them are from Mindanao.
The intensification brought them learning and realizations which increased their faith and strengthened their vocation – all enveloped in happiness. Br. Mario Mortalla, OFMCap., Guardian of the Santuario de San Francisco Fraternity and Fr. Rex Cutamora, OFMCap., Director of the National Vocations Office, were assisted in the Intensification by the following brothers, namely: Br. Vincent Paul Bitong, OFMCap., Br. Jasper John Española, OFMCap., Br. Christian Feliciano, OFMCap., Br. Jose Raul Rico, OFMCap. and Br. Jeffrey Torres, OFMCap.
