Solemn Profession in the Province of Our Lady of the Rosary, Hong Kong

Profesión Solemne en la Provincia de Ntra. Señora del Rosario, Hong Kong

On 31 December 2016 Brother Bosco Xiong Zhiyong made his solemn profession in the hands of Fr. Provincial Javier Gonzalez in a ceremony that took place in the Chapel of St. Albert Priory, at Rosaryhill School, Hong Kong, during the solemn recitation of  Vespers of the Solemnity of Mary the Holy Mother of God.

Fr. Provincial, in his exhortation, recalled that the profession is made till death and all the professed brothers have the duty to live with fidelity the religious oaths and promises that they have made to God. Forty Dominicans from the two communities of Hong Kong, including postulants, novices, student brothers and priests, witnessed the profession of brother Bosco. All of them thanked God for all the graces received during the celebrations of the 800 Jubilee of the Foundation of the Order and the Year of Mercy.

The religious ceremony ended with the singing of the Salve Regina and the O Spem Miram. Afterwards a fraternal agape dinner was served in the dining room of St. Albert Priory. Brother Bosco is completing the Licentiate in Religious Studies at the Holy Spirit College Seminary.
