In Quezon City, in our Residence, a week before the fiesta, we decorated our small place with the tarpaulin of Father founder Blessed Marcelo Spinola to give us the atmosphere and ambiance of the fiesta throughout the whole month of January. We can sense the fiesta spirit the moment we enter the gate of our house. Everyone who visited our house will feel the same way.
We prepared a short but beautiful prayer with our ladies in the dormitory and we had it on the week of the fiesta. Before the prayer, we showed to them a short video about Marcelo Spinola’s life followed by reading a short summary of his life. Later we played a game that helped us check simple facts about his life. We also celebrated the Thanksgiving Eucharistic celebration in honor of father Founder followed by a simple agape with the dormers. Sister Amparo prepared delicious paella and croquetas, which all of us especially the dormers like so much. On the part of the dormers, they brought sweets/ dessert for sharing during the agape. Truly we feel that we are a family in this small corner of the world, uniting our hearts in thanksgiving to God for the gift of Marcelo Spinola in our life, in the Congregation, in the Church and in the world. Happy Fiesta Spinola family!
