The postulants from Western America and Mid-America Provinces have been together during the week of March 8-15 for collaborative workshops on the religious vows (poverty, chastity, and obedience). Workshops are taking place at the NAPCC Novitiate (San Lorenzo Seminary) and are being presented by Fr. Bill Kraus, Br. Michael Walsh, and Fr. Hai Ho. The 7 postulants from Colorado, and 2 from California, along with their directors, will also attend the Religious Education Congress in Anaheim this coming weekend. Before they began, the group enjoyed a fraternal afternoon with ice cream on the pier and walk on the beach in Santa Barbara.
