Br. Fredy Contreras, CSV, took the second step in his formation process toward the priesthood. Following the code of Canon Law, he received the ministry of acolyte from Fr. Thomas von Behren, CSV, during a Mass in Bogotá that was concelebrated by Fr. Edgar Suárez, superior of the Foundation of Colombia.
His acolyte ceremony came less than two years after Br. Fredy professed his perpetual vows as a Viatorian.
He is part of a steady stream of Viatorian vocations to come out of Bogota, since the Viatorians first arrived there as missionaries in 1961.
