On Saturday, September 12, 2020, thirteen friars of the Province of St. Joseph, Spouse of the B.V.M. in Romania made their solemn profession.

The ceremony took place at the Franciscan Theological Institute in Roman, Romania. Those attending included many friars as well as the friends and family of the newly professed. Mass was presided over by the newly elected Minister Provincial of Romania, Friar Damian-Gheorghe PĂTRAȘCU. He also gave a homily.
The new solemnly professed are Friars Adrian COBZARU, Alexandru Cosmin SASCĂU, Alexandru Ionel DIAC, Alexandru Mihai DUMEA, Andrei Iulian CIOBANU, Emanuel PIȚA, Emanuel Petrache ANTICA, Gabriel PAL, Marian Emanuel VĂTĂMĂNELU, Marius Marcel DOBOȘ, Iosif-Mihai SABĂU, Narcis Leonard LASLĂU and Petru VÂRGĂ.
