Bro. Nagasaki So - a Claretian Missionary

Claretian Missionaries who work in this part of the world  [East Asia] are grouped by country which includes China, Japan, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan.

A Japanese Claretian seminarian has made his fianl profession of vows in Japan. It is a matter of great joy for us as priestly and religious vocations in Japan are nominal. And Japan with 127 million people, only has half a million Catholics, i.e., less than 0.5% of the population.
On October 14, 2013, national feast in Japan, Bro. Nagasaki So made his perpetual profession through the hands of Fr. Shinji Takenobu, vicar of the Delegation and coordinator of Japan.. The ceremony was celebrated at our church in Imaichi (Osaka).  

At the end of the celebration Nagasaki So made a moving and soulful address in which he remembered his vocational process. Having made his Perpetual profession of vows, Bro. Nagasaki So moves a step closer to the Ordained ministry in the Church. We wish him the Heaven's choicest Blessings!
