Claretian Vocation Day – Professions and Renewals


Bengaluru: 31st May 2022, Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Claretian Vocation Day, was indeed a joyous day for all the Claretians in India. On this day all the Major Organisms in India have their Professions and Renewals; so some celebrate their Jubilees too.

Province of Bangalore had the special privilege of having the presence of Rev. Fr. Joseph Mbungu-Mutu, the General Prefect of Formation, who presided at the celebrations of Entry to Novitiate, First Profession and Renewal of Professions. On 30th May nine Postulants from different Major Organisms of India entered Novitiate at Claret Bhavan Carmelaram.

At the same venue, the next day four Novices of the Province of Bangalore made their First Profession and thirteen students renewed their vows (eleven from Bangalore and two from St. Thomas).

Indeed it was a renewed enthusiasm as for the past two years, due to the pandemic, such celebrations were not possible. Many Claretian conferrers, neighbouring priests and religious, well-wishers and families of those making their first profession were part of the solemn celebration.
