SOLEMNITY OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION, 127TH FOUNDATION DAY, SILVER JUBILEE AND RENEWAL OF VOWS
On December 8, 2015 the Sisters of the Divine Savior- Philippine Region celebrated a great feast for four reasons: the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception- principal patroness, the 127th Anniversary of the Foundation of the Congregation, Silver Jubilee of Sr. Milagros Goyena, SDS, Sr. Jocel Sucaldito, SDS and Sr. Ma. Olympia Aquino, SDS and finally, the Renewal of Vows of Sr. Ruth Baguinon, SDS and Sr. Rose Agnes Etong, SDS.
Fr. Hubert Kranz, SDS officiated the celebration of the Eucharist. His homily was inspiring especially when one has already spent about half or more of her life in the consecrated life. He said that one can still do great things in life by God's help even at an old age by citing some examples. God will continue to work in us if we cooperate with His grace. The Holy Eucharist was concelebrated by our own SDS Fathers and our good friends- the Scalabrinians. Some Relatives of the Silver Jubilarians came as far as Iloilo and Tarlac. Benefactors and friends of the sisters were also present to celebrate with us on this momentous occasion. All the five sisters- the three Jubilarians and Renewalists were very grateful for the grace and mercy of God that has been sustaining them all these years in their life and mission! It was a solemn, joyous celebration, indeed!
