Golden Jubilee Anniversary
March 25, 2017 the PDDM Philippine-Taiwan-Hongkong celebrate in joy and thanksgiving the Annunciation of the Birth of Jesus to Mary.
We are especially grateful to God, not only for the gift of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Our Lady of the Annunciation, but also for the gift of the person of our sisters: Sr. Mary Pauline Darnalya and Sr. MaryCeline Santiago who for fifty years, took the courage to believe and follow the will of God as they live the life, vocation and mission of the Disciples of the Divine Master sharing in the Paschal Mystery of Christ, like Mary.
The 10:00 am solemn Eucharistic Celebration presided by Most Rev. Francisco de Leon, DD., Bishop of the Diocese of Antipolo, concelebrated by Most Rev. Buenaventura “Ben” Famadico, DD, Bishop of San Pablo, Fr. Noel Deslate, and guest priests, and priests from the Galilee Center where Sr. M. Celine Santiago serves, took place at the Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage Shrine, Antipolo Cathedral.
United with the whole universal Church and graced with the presence of the members of the Pauline Family, the jubilarians' families and friends, this joyful milestone evoked sentiments of deep thanksgiving for the manifold blessings received from God.
Like Mary, we, too, with the jubilarians say: “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word.” (Luke 1:38)
