Saturday, August 29, fourteen Conventual Franciscan Friars will pronounce their first vows at the main altar over the Tomb of St. Francis of Assisi in the Basilica of St. Francis in Assisi.

After a year of prayer and living in community in the Novitiate under the guidance of Novice Master, Fr. Alfredo Avallone, O.F.M.Conv. and Assisitant Novice Master, Fr. Mauro Silva, O.F.M.Conv. during the celebration of the Eucharist, the 14 from different parts of Europe and Africa will take the first step toward solemn perpetual consecration by pronouncing the Vows of Poverty, Chastity and Obedience at the 11AM Eucharistic Liturgy.

The friars to make temporary profession are fr. PASQUALE DELLO IACOVO, 45, priest of the religious Province of Puglia; fr. ANICET NGENDANDUMWE, 43, of the Italian Province of St. Anthony of Padua; fr. MICHELE BRATTOLI, 40, of the Roman Province; fr. SIMONE PAGNONI, 38, of the Italian Province of St. Anthony of Padua; fr. ANDREA PORCEDDU, 36, of the Italian Province of St. Anthony of Padua; fr. FLAVIO AGOSTINI, 34, of the religious Province of Umbra; fr. ALBERTO TONELLO, 30, of St. Anthony of Padua; fr. GIANLUCA CATAPANO, 29, of the religious Province of Puglia; fr. GIACOMO MANGANO, 29, of the religious Province of Sicily; fr. EMANUEL DORCU, 27, of the religious Province of Romania; fr. BAPTISTE MACÉ, 26, of the provincial Custody of France-Belgium; fr. CIRO VIRGA, 24, of the religious Province of Sicily; fr. THIERRY DUBREZ, 22, of the provincial Custody of France-Belgium; fr. PETAR KRAŠEK, 19, of the religious Province of Croatia.   

The friars of the Sacred Convent and of the religious provinces of affiliation, together with their families, thank the Lord and invite all to unite in the prayer for these young men as they begin their journey in the consecrated life.  

The Choir of the Papal Basilica of St. Francis in Assisi introduces the First Edition of a new series of cultural events, called "From the Hill of Paradise: Notes from the Land of Saint Francis", which are scheduled at the Sacred Convent on August 25, 27, 28 and 30, 2015.

Music Director for the Basilica, Fr. Giuseppe Magrino, O.F.M.Conv. describes this musical and cultural celebration as "a desire to celebrate the 750th anniversary of the birth of the great poet, Dante Alighieri, and his verses on the beauty of the city of Assisi in Canto XI of Il Paradiso of the Divine Comedy, by organizing a series of events promoting the art, the faith and the culture of Assisi and what it represents."

The willingness of artists of this area to share their generosity and love for the places and the message of Saint Francis gave birth to this celebration in its First Edition from "The Hill of Paradise" (as Pope Gregory IX called the hill on which the Basilica is built) for the sole purpose of presenting Assisi as "a credible model of peace and dialogue."
