The celebration of the Solemnity of the Assumption on August 15, 2018 is an occasion of thanksgiving for the Philippine-Taiwan-Hongkong Province as our three temporary professed sisters renew their vows. Sr. M. Emily Pitogo, Sr. M. Julieta Jose and Sr. M. Cherylsalve Cualquira repeat their “YES” during the celebration of the Holy Eucharist in their respective communities. Sr. M. Emily made her renewal of vows in Davao and the renewal was received by her Local superior – Sr. M. Gracia Mag-uyon.  In Cebu, Sr. Ma. Julieta made her renewal before Sr. M. Geraldine Bucog, her local superior and she was blessed by Fr. Leonardo Ellezar, SSP with Fr. Paul Yntig, SSP and Fr. Dan delos Angeles. Her renewal of vows was witnessed by the sisters in DMC-Cebu community, FDM, IOLA, common friends and benefactors. In PAC-Manila, Sr. M. Cherylsalve made her renewal of vows before Sr. M. Magdalene Magallanes, provincial councilor delegated to receive the vows. The celebration was witnessed by the sisters in the community, PLMCs and some friends. Sr. M. Cherylsalve and her community were blessed to have Fr. Jose Aripio, the Provincial Superior of the Society of St. Paul, as their mass presider.

We rejoice with the gifts of these, our sisters, who joyfully welcomed God’s invitation to remain at his vineyard. We accompany them with our prayers that they may carry the mission like Mary, seeking only goodness and bringing others to the beauty of God’s redeeming grace.
