Search-in 2024: A Week of Brotherhood and Spiritual Growth

From June 3rd to 8th, 2024, six brothers from across the country gathered at St. Maximilian Friary in Multinational Village, Parañaque City for an enriching Vocation Search-In Program. Under the guidance of the Vocation Director, Fra Odorico Laoreno, OFMConv., and Fra Raphael Ysulan, OFMConv., the participants immersed themselves in the friary’s spiritual and communal life.

The Brother Observers engaged deeply in the community’s daily life, including Mass, the Liturgy of the Hours, and shared meals. The program featured insightful sessions on vocation, brotherhood, the stages of formation, Franciscan history, the Militia of the Immaculata (MI), Justice, Peace, and the Integrity of Creation (JPIC), and the Secular Franciscan Order (OFS).

A special eucharistic adoration for vocations was held on the third evening, fostering a profound spiritual experience. The fourth day offered a refreshing change of pace with a visit to St. Joseph Friary in Tagaytay. On the fifth day, the Provincial Custos, Fra Emmanuel Giva, OFMConv., conducted interviews with the participants, followed by a memorable fraternal night that marked the end of the program.
