On March 19, 2023, five young men entered the postulancy program of the Provincial Custody of St. Francis of Assisi in Colombia. The event took place at the Inmaculada Concepción Friary in Bogota, Colombia.
Mass for the event was presided over by the Provincial Custos, Friar Sidifredo de la Cruz CHAPARRO GUALDRÓN. The Custos was assisted by his confreres in the formation community and by other friars from the local San Antonio de Padua Friary.
May God’s grace open the hearts of these postulants so that they may, like St. Francis, listen to the voice of the Lord, who invites them to follow Him closely in order to be His disciples and missionaries, conformed to the person of Jesus Christ and his Gospel.
