GOLDEN JUBILLEE OF RELIGIOUS PROFESSION
Three important events fell on the same day the whole Church honoured the Blessed Mother Mary on the feast of her Assumption to heaven on August 15, 2014. Our dear Sr. Jane Marie Apuan, SDS- first Filipina Salvatorian (at 88!) celebrated her golden jubilee (50th) of religious profession. On this same day was also the 13th year of foundation of the Salvatorian Pastoral Care for Children (SPCC). Sr. Belen Santiago, SDS also had her renewal of vows. Highlight of the triple celebration was the Holy Eucharist led by Fr. Gregory Coulthard, SDS, concelebrated by Fr. Vinoy Joseph Thottakkara, SDS and Fr. Leonardo Adaptar, CS. The relatives- Apuan family, friends and benefactors of the sisters were present to grace the occasion.
It was a moment of joy, gratitude and celebration of life especially for the celebrant. Sr. Jane Marie's perseverance in the life and mission of our Salvatorian journey gives witness to the love of Jesus, the Divine Savior. It was out of God's unconditional love and mercy that she was called and chosen. We pray that the Lord will continue to bless her in a special way.
Congratulations, Sr. Jane Marie and thank you very much for your dedication and self-giving as a Salvatorian! Likewise best wishes to SPCC admin & staff, and to Sr. Belen!
