Vincentian Seminarians Begin Internal Seminary

Rogelio Pineda, Fr. Teodoro Justavino (Regional Superior), and Juan Carlos Guerra left for St. Juan Gabriel Perboyre, C.M. Internal Seminary of the Congregation of the Mission in Guatemala on January 2, 2020. Both seminarians are from Concepcion, Chiriqui, Panama and have finished Philosophy studies in the San Jose Major Seminary in Panama City, Panama.

After a three day retreat they and other seminarians from neighboring Provinces (Central America, Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Mexico) will be received formally as beginning members of the Congregation. Fr. Emmet Nolan, C.M. (Region of Panama) is director and Fr. Juan Jose Mendoza (El Salvador) is assistant director. Their Internal Seminary experience lasts for one year. Please keep these men in your prayers as they enter the internal seminary.
