Renewal Of Vows - Br. Omar
The New Manila community gathered for a special occasion, Thursday evening, June 28: the renewal of vows by Brother Omar Oyengoren, SDS. Bro. Omar made his profession before Fr. Christopher Kowalczyk, SDS, main celebrant at the Mass. Following the Mass, all gathered in the dining room for a special meal prepared by several of the theologians. In addition to the celebratory nature of the occasion, a spirit of "farewell" graced the event. In the first week of July, Bro. Omar will leave Manila for a visit home near Cebu. In September he will go directly to his new assignment with the Colombian province in South America.. The Colombian Salvatorians in the city of Cali have a special outreach program. Bro. Omar will be able to use his nursing skills as part of this program. We send him off with our best wishes and a promise of prayers as he begins this new phase of his life as a Salvatorian.
