7 Brothers Professed Solemn Vows

Solemn Profession

On the Memorial of Augustinian Blessed James of Viterbo, a Bishop, the San Agustin Center of Studies celebrated a significant milestone as seven friars of the Order of Saint Augustine Province of Sto. Niño de Cebu-Philippines solemnly professed their vows. This event marked a profound moment for the Order and the friars, who dedicated their lives to God through the solemn vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience.

The newly professed friars are:

Fray Jeremy Jonas Reyes Alcaria, OSA, from Mabini, Davao de Oro

These friars have committed themselves to a life of service, embodying the Augustinian principles and following the example of Saint Augustine. The solemn profession ceremony highlighted their deep commitment to living faithfully in unity and love, with minds and hearts intent upon God.

The Order expressed its gratitude to the friars for their dedication and encouraged them to continue their journey with steadfast faith. The event was a testament to their choice to follow Jesus Christ more closely, giving a fuller expression to their baptismal consecration.
