Lesly Nohemi Perez Sanchez and Maria de los Angeles Ramos Gonzalez were received as candidates of the Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity.
Living at San Jose Missionary Cenacle in Mexico City with the new Candidates, Mari and Lesly are Sisters Olivia, Mary Kay and Janet.
Sr. Deborah Wilson shared the following: “We gathered in our chapel and began by singing “Alma Misionera,” which well expresses the missionary spirit of our charism. After praying the psalms of the day, Sr. Joan called forth Lesly and Mari. They stood before the altar and declared their desire to be received as candidates. Sr. Joan formally received them and gave them small Holy Spirit pins on chains, which Mary Kay and Olivia then placed around their necks. Sr. Joan gave a brief reflection, and after more prayers and intercessions, we closed by singing “Digo Si!” The entire service, including the Rite of Reception, was conducted in Spanish.
After the Reception, we went out for a fine meal at a neighborhood restaurant. We returned to the Cenacle to end the celebration with what might possibly have been the most delicious chocolate cake in the Western Hemisphere.
Lesly and Mari seem very happy, and so are we. We ask you to remember them in prayer as they begin the time of Candidacy.”
