Preparing for May Flowers

Manila – May is the month of flowers, and the month in honor of Mary. Like the different parishes throughout the country, Guanella Center hosts a daily catechetical program for children and the praying of the Holy Rosary and offering of flowers to Mary for the whole month of May. Aside from Guanella Center, our staff, volunteers and seminarians are also going to three different chapels to help catechize the children and pray the rosary. These chapels, San Agustin, Pantranco and Roque 2, located in some depressed areas, become the center of evangelization not only for the children but somehow also for their mothers and other adults who sit in once in a while. Our Flores De Mayo activities are always in collaboration with the Flores de Mayo of our parish, San Isidro Labrador. At the end of the month, a traditional annual procession called “Santacruzan” is being held in honor of Mama Mary. flores2 flores
