125th FOUNDATION DAY / FINAL PROFESSION
On December 8, 2013, on the occasion of the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, our congregation: Sisters of the Divine Savior also known as Salvatorian Sisters celebrated its 125th year of foundation. Equally worth celebrating was the Final Profession of vows of Sr. Lida Asuncion, SDS. We thank the Lord for these blessings He gifted our Philippine Region. The solemn mass was presided over by Fr. Hubert Kranz, SDS and was concelebrated by about 11 priests from SDS and other congregations. Many of our friends and benefactors also came to join the celebration. Likewise, Sr. Ruth Baguinon, SDS and Sr. Agnes Etong, SDS did their renewal of vows for a year. The rest of us did the common renewal which we do annually on December 8. The Divine Savior bless us all!
SILVER JUBILEE AND RENEWAL OF VOWS
On August 15, 2013, the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Sr. Ma. Elisa Ranises, SDS and Sr. Ma. Soledad Cantos, SDS joyfully celebrated their Silver Jubilee (25 years) year of profession as Salvatorians. It was a great moment to thank the LORD for the whole Philippine Region. Fr. Adam Janus, SDS,Vicariate Superior of the Salvatorian Fathers in the Philippines, presided over the Eucharistic celebration while Fr. Mariano "Junjun" Agruda III, OCD was the homilist. On this special day too, Sr. Lida Asuncion, SDS and Sr. Belen Santiago, SDS renewed their profession of vows for a year. We thank our Salvatorian Fathers and our neighbor- priests, the Scalabrinians, other priests for concelebrating in the Eucharist. Same with our faithful benefactors, friends and relatives of the two Jubilarians who came to rejoice and celebrate with the Salvatorian Sisters. It was a day of deep gratitude to the ONE TRUE GOD, JESUS- SAVIOR who has called and chosen us to make Him known, loved and served by all! Praise Him indeed!
