Debrezeit: 26th August was a joyful day for the province of AET as Novice Dereje Jarra, the only novice in the province made his first commitment to the Lord. Even though the year was begun with three novices, during the year two of them left the noviciate leaving Dereje alone to complete the year. The ceremony of the First Profession was held at the Debrezeit noviciate chapel in the presence of the Provincial, Abba Estifanos Gebremeskel,
Vicar and many other friends and well-wishers. During his thanksgiving speech the newly professed thanked the Almighty for the gift of his vocation and at the same time asked the community to support him in his vocational journey with prayers.
