We are pleased to announce the opening of our South American Novitiate in Lima, Peru, with the first class of six novices inducted on January 2, and two other men expected to join soon.

The Friars are grateful and humbled by the generosity of the OFM Missionary Province of St. Francis Solano in granting us the use of the St. Francis Solano Retreat Center as our novitiate.

The opening of our new novitiate is the culmination of more than three years of effort and perseverance in the face of many obstacles.

Please pray for our new novices! May Our Lady of the Atonement give them the grace to continue to persevere.
