On Wednesday, July 20, 2016, seven young men representing the Provinces of Our Lady of Consolation, St. Joseph of Cupertino, and Our Lady of the Angels were invested with the habit of probation beginning their canonical year of Novitiate. This is the first investiture to take place at our newly relocated National Novitiate in Arroyo Grande, CA. Arroyo Grande served as the novitiate site of our province of St. Joseph of Cupertino for 20 years.
