05/01/2018: Philippines

 

On January 02, 2018, the Institute of the Marist Brothers celebrated its 201th Foundation Anniversary. In the Philippine sector, around Thirty (30) lay people gathered at the East Asia Province Center to join the Marist Brothers in the celebration of this significant event. The program started at 1:30 PM with Bro. Ador Santiago FMS, welcoming participants coming from Marbel, Kidapawan, Cotabato and General Santos City.

The event was made meaningful by the sharing of the participants of the 22nd General Chapter: Br. Nelson Beltran presented an overview of the Chapter Calls, and the personal impact on him as participant of the Chapter. Ms. Elma Rafil talked about the spirit of new communion and on matters about the vocation of the Marist Laity. Br. Lindley gave an informative sharing on the new calls for mission, noting the challenge of taking contemplative stance as we embarked on doing our missionary tasks. It was an enriching opportunity for both the laity and the brothers to know more about the direction of the “New Beginning”. It will, indeed, guide the development of Marist life and mission in the succeeding years.

The Thanksgiving Mass was officiated by Fr. Jempoy Caspis, MCCJ, an NDDU alumnus and a Comboni Missionary, with co-presider Fr. Roy Laudenorio, an NDMU alumnus and a visiting Military Chaplain from Canada.

The event concluded with a fellowship dinner which offered an opportunity of rekindling the warmth of family spirit shared among those present to grace the event.
