Cebu, the Philippines, 30 April 2018 -- Don Bosco Formation Center had a special event last April 30, 2018 at the Chapel of St. Francis of Sales with the canonical acceptance of eleven new novices and the renewal of vows by twelve temporarily professed Salesians.

The ceremony began with a soft blessing of the chapel that is currently nearing its completion. Fr. Honesto Geronimo Jr, SDB, the vice provincial of the FIS province presided the ceremonies. The evening began with solemn vespers, his short reflections on being a Salesian. This was followed by the acceptance of the new novices from the provinces of FIN and FIS who entrusted themselves to their novice director: Fr. Philip Lazatin, SDB.
