On July 15th, 2016, in the parish church of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, KENTY ABIMELEC ROSALES received the ministry of lector and acolyte. Participants in this event included other young men in the formation program, confreres from the Region of Honduras and the Province of Barcelona and Father José Ramón, Kenty’s present formator who is ministering at the theologate in San Salvador (the place where Kenty will continue his studies).
The beautiful parish church of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal was filled with friends of the seminary community who shared in the joy of this event. After the Eucharist the confreres and the young men in formation shared a meal and enjoyed a very relaxing time together during which music and jokes and stories were exchanged. This celebration was initiated and concluded by Father Antonio Quetglas, CM who, although infirm, wanted to be present at this community celebration.
At the present time there are five young men studying philosophy at the Saint Vincent de Paul Seminary in Tegucigalpa, one young man at the CLAPVI Seminary (North) in Mexico, Kenty Abimelec Rosales in San Salvador, and in August of this year, one young man will enter the Internal Seminary in Guatemala. In 2017 it is hoped that two or three new candidates will enter the formation program (these candidates are presently in the process of discernment),
