Mother Auxiliadora, of the congregation of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and Saint Michael Archangel, has sent us a video thanking our donors for their generous help in purchasing musical instruments and computers for the convent. They are very, very grateful, and keep the benefactors of Friends of Campos in their prayers.
This update will be largely photographic, as the seminary has sent me a slew of great photos from Holy Week, Easter and the recent ceremonies of reception of the Tonsure and Minor Orders. I have not been able to visit recently myself, though I hope to go in late May and several members of our board of directors have plans to visit in June and July.
I look forward to bringing you more personal updates from those visits!
Meanwhile, please enjoy the ‘virtual visit’ via these pictures:
The reception of tonsure and minor orders took place on April 23 of this year:

I also wanted to highlight a post over on New Liturgical Movement which features photos from the ordination to the diaconate of Mr. João Bosco and Mr. Juaci, which took place at the end of March. Take a look at their lovely photos here!
Wishing you all a blessed month of May!
