October 23-24, 2021: A RECOGNITION GREETINGS Interprovincial Coordination to all members of the OCDS d’Italia
My dear ones, In informing you that our dear Father Alzinir Francisco Debastiani has finished his service period in the OCDS and has returned to Brazil where he will be assigned to a convent in the north-east of his country, we give you the news of the nomination as new Delegate General for the OCDS of Father Ramiro Casale OCD of California-Arizona Province that will soon assume new responsibility.
We would like to thank Father Alzinir from the bottom of our heart for the dedication with which he followed us during these 10 years of his assignment demonstrating a great love for Carmelo and its Saints, but first of all a deep faith and nourished intimacy with the Lord, one love for the Virgin Mary.
And we want to give our warmest welcome to Padre Ramiro to whom we ensure our prayerful memory and all our willingness to cooperate together in the service of the OCDS. In an email in response to our wishful greeting Father Ramiro wrote: “Thank you for your message. Greetings from the United States. Been in Rome for a few days and still not back. Can't wait to start my OCDS service. You are all in my prayers and I thank you so much for yours”.
We too, Father Ramiro, look forward to meeting you and starting working with you for the good of our Secular Order.
