On July 23 our community had the pleasure of hosting the Profession of Arnold Gafero. Arnold had his Novitiate in 1993 here in Dumalag, but in 1999 he decided not to take his final Profession and left the Society of Mary. However, he kept in touch with the Marists and their ministries in the district of the Philippines and on September 12, 2008 he asked the Superior of the District for permission to re-enter the Society. It was decided that he would live two months here with us in the international novitiate for time to reflect on his desire to become a member of the SM once again.
