On Thursday, the 8th of September 2011, our three SVD-seminarians renewed their temporary religious vows: Anatoli Gamsa, Stephen Tsergel, and Vitaly Nikolaev. The Holy Mass, at which representatives of religious congregations, priests, members of our SVD community and friends of the SVD were present, was celebrated in the BVM Visitation Church in St. Petersburg. It has become a tradition that the Divine Word Missionaries (Societas Verbi Divini ) perform this celebration (of taking vows) on the anniversary of their foundation. The young confreres were prepared for that event in the retreat given by Fr. Michael Tsymlyakov, a priest working in the parish of Petrosavodsk, Moscow Diocese.
