A Joyful Celebration!

November 30, 2018

Wednesday, November 21st was a special day in the life of Raphael Ma, C.R., his father, community members, Apostles of the Resurrection, many friends and well wishers.  Raphael professed his final vows at St. Francis of Assisi Parish in Kitchener.  Fr. Murray McDermott, C.R. presided and Fr. Jim Donohue, C.R. preached an interesting and humorous homily. (As you will see by the pictures of some of the guests below).  A reception followed this joyful event. Below are pictures from this memorable event:
