From March 4-8, 2019, Friar Jude WINKLER, OFM Conv., presented a workshop to the novices of the English- speaking novitiate in Tagaytay City, the Philippines, and to the postulants of the Custody of the Philippines.

The topic of the conference was, “The Gospels and their Message to Us Today for Our Religious Life.”
There are presently four novices for the Philippines and two for Vietnam. There are five postulants in their second year of postulancy (which is held in Novaliches, the Philippines) and two in their first year of postulancy (in Tagaytay City).
On Friday, Friar Jude preached an afternoon of recollection on the topic of “Forty Days in the Desert” for members of the Custody and other religious who live in the Tagaytay City area.
