Manila – As part of our celebration and preparation for the Centennial of the Birth of our Founder in Heaven, the Servants of Charity and the Daughters of Saint Mary of Providence organized a FAMILY DAY on January 31, 2015; the Feast of Saint John Bosco. The day began with a Eucharistic Celebration presided by Fr. Charlton with our Guanellian Concelebrating priests; Fr. David, Fr. Charles and Fr. Loyola at the convent and mission house of our sisters in Quezon City. It was followed by a breakfast with time to share during the meal. Then we traveled to a resort in Montalban, Rizal for other activities; including games, presentations, singing, meals, movies and story sharing.
It was the first time for an activity like this with our sisters; spending the whole day together to deepen our friendship, communion, and family spirit. Here in the Philippines, we are proud to have a good relationship with our Guanellian sisters, and we pray that this communion may grow even deeper in the future. St. Louis Guanella, pray for us!
