From April 25-27, Fr. Herbie attended the General Assembly of the St. Anthony's Province in Morlupo, Rome. The assemby convened in the afternoon of April 25 where a solemn mass was celebrated and followed by dinner. Confreres from other houses started to come and there was a lively atmosphere greeting each other and exchanging pleasantries.
April 16, in the evening of Black Saturday, the Community prepared for the Solemn Easter Vigil. Though it was quite chilly outside the blessing of the new fire was accomplished. The procession towards the chapel was done smoothly while the liturgy was performed.
