We felt blessed to be given the opportunity to accompany persons in these days of joining and accompanying Jesus in His last moments here on earth. The three (3) communities here in the Philippines celebrated the Easter Triduum with persons with us in retreat.
In Quezon City community, we had eight (8) lay persons of diverse ages with Srs. Nilda & Amparo. In Ipil, we had fifteen (15), ten (10) of them belong to our Spinola Laiko group, two (2) were our new teachers and the three (3) others are our youth with our Sisters Myrna, Jesnen, Bonnie and Emely. And in Zamboanga City, we had 26 young people college students and young professionals with Srs. Angeles, Helen, Therry, Angie, Jerline , Elmor and Reychelle , our postulant.
It was a great opportunity for us sisters doing this simple, but important mission and work of the Church in evangelizing and educating our people on matters of our faith. Every body were very happy and grateful for the wonderful opportunity that was given to them to join in this Easter Triduum retreat. Most of them expressed that it was only now that they celebrated the passion, death and resurrection of Christ in a more meaningful way. Now, they also feel impel to share it to others especially to their families. Thanks God, thank you dear sisters for your availability and thank you everyone for saying ‘Yes’to the invitation… JESUS is RISEN! May the joy and hope of the resurrection be in our hearts. Come, let us celebrate…for He lives forevermore!
