On Saturday, October 18, 2014 Confr. Santiago Alberto Valerio of the Passion professed perpetual vows in the parish of St. Matthias in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. The liturgy was presided over by the Vice Provincial Fr. José Ramón Montañez, accompanied by four other priests of the Vice Province. There were also candidates and aspirants of the Dominican Republic and a professed student, an aspirant and a postulant (all three of them Puerto Ricans). In addition to the several of the Passionist Sisters working in the Dominican Republic there were also parishioners of the different communities where we have a Passionist presence in the Dominican Republic.
Congratulations to our brother Santiago and may St. Paul of the Cross, our father and founder, intercede with the Lord for His fidelity and perseverance!
