SPCC -11TH FOUNDATION ANNIVERSARY
The Salvatorian Pastoral Care for Children or SPCC was founded on August 15, 2001. It is the main apostolate of the Salvatorian Sisters in the Philippines as per mission priorities of the international Congregation. That is to protect the welfare of women and children.
The 11th anniversary of its foundation was held at the Palace of the Rock, St. Peter Parish along Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City. The theme was: Celebrating God's Providence on SPCC's 11th Anniversary. The highlight of the event was the Eucharistic Celebration at almost 3:00 in the afternoon led by the Most Rev. Bishop Antonio Tobias, DD assisted by Salvatorian Fathers led by their superior, Fr. Christopher Kowalczek, SDS and others including a CICM priest. It was a moment of gratitude and remembrance as to how much God has blessed the project and its beneficiaries. The Philippine Region would like to thank the donors and volunteers, friends of SPCC! Mabuhay, SPCC!
