Br Nerlito Dioneda Mission Superior Labuan Bajo speaks to the sponsor children

In November 2016, all the sponsor children and their families came to the monastery to convey their greetings to their sponsor parents in Australia. Brother Nerlito, who was then Superior of the Mission, encouraged the children to be grateful for their sponsored education so that they in turn can assist others less fortunate.

Blessings, Trevor and Tina

Traditional Flores dance performed at postulancy ceremony, Labuan Bajo Mission 2017

In June 2017, we were privileged to attend the postulancy ceremony at the Labuan Bajo Mission during which the young aspirant brothers took their first vows and become postulants. From this they will travel to the novitiate in the Philippines to enter the next stage of being a novice brother. During the ceremony the young brothers performed a traditional Flores ceremonial dance. Quite entertaining and please enjoy!

Thank you through song: from the brothers of the Saburai Mission, Timor Leste 2017

When it is time for visitors to leave after visiting the mission, it is a tradition for the brothers to thank the visitors for their kindness and generosity when joining with them in their life at the mission. This was one of those times after my visit to the Timor Leste mission in December 2017. Watch the brothers give their thanks through song and get a glimpse into the special moments you can experience when you become part of the mission.

Blessings, Trevor.
