Clerics Erick Mark Salamat and Albert Garong will attend the “Corso” or Course in Formation in Preparation for Perpetual Profession which is being organized for the first time by the SSP General Government for those who are preparing for their final vows. Venue is the Divine Master Retreat House in Ariccia, Albano which is near Rome. The two will be joined by Clerics Dindo Purto and Reymel Ramos who made their Perpetual Profession last March 30 but were allowed to join by the Provincial Superior and Council to have a deeper experience of Pauline life and mission.
The four will leave for Rome on June 20 together with the Provincial Superior Fr. Jose Aripio who will be attending the Meeting of SSP Major Superiors called by the Superior General. They will first study the Italian language before undergoing the Corso. They are expected to be back in the Philippines on December 6, 2016.
