Every year the convention provides way of renewing camaraderie among members and deepening of the members’ spirituality. This year, UNO-R’s Mr. Fritz Palma & Mr. Mariano Antenor will take the Rites of Admittance as new members of the fraternity during the Eucharistic Celebration on the second day of the convention.
