On August 15, 2011, feast of the Assumption of Our Lady, our two sisters, Sr. Augustine Paderna, SDS and Sr. Geraldine Avila,SDS celebrated their 40th year of religious profession with the sisters in the Region. It was a momentous event not only for the 2 sisters but for all the Salvatorian sisters in the Philippines. We thank GOD for the gift of vocation of Sr. Gus and Sr. Gerald and their perseverance to a committed life with Jesus.
His Excellency, Bishop Deogracias Yñiguez,DD of the Diocese of Caloocan was the main celebrant with our Salvatorian priests, Fr. Christopher Kowalczyk, SDS, Fr. Gregory, SDS and Fr. Valentin Mendoza, CS as co-celebrants. The presence of friends, families, religious from other congregations made the celebration joyful and meaningful.
The day’s event centered on gratitude to the LORD for the great blessings He has bestowed upon these 2 sisters. We thank Bishop Yñiguez, DD and all those who came to celebrate life with us. Thank you also for the gifs and donations given by our friends, relatives and guests to support the projects and programs of the Salvatorians. God reward you!
