4th Renewal of Vows
On the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (August 15, 2019), our three temporary professed Sisters: Sr. M. Emily Pitogo, Sr. M. Cherylsalve Cualquira and Sr. M. Julieta Jose made their renewal of vows. Sr. M. Emily had her renewal of vows at DMC-Davao while Sr. M. Cherylsalve and Sr. M. Julieta had theirs at PAC-Manila. Fr. Albert Leopold Bernal, SSP celebrated the holy eucharist at DMC-Davao chapel while PAC-Manila chapel had the privileged to have Fr. Rolline “Tuzzi” Flores, SSP Provincial Superior. Sr. M. Anthony Basa, our Provincial Superior, received the vows of Sr. M. Cherylsalve and Sr. M. Julieta, while Sr. M. Gracia Mag-uyon, Local Superior of Davao community, was mandated to receive the vows of Sr. M. Emily.
This occasion of renewal is a moment of grace and thanksgiving not only for our temporary professed sisters but also for all the sisters in the Philippine-Taiwan-Hongkong Province. Our Blessed Mother Mary is affirming with us the vocations we received and to her we entrust the journey of these our young and promising sisters. For both communities, the celebration extended from the chapel to a partaking of meal with the company of some PDDM sisters, members of APC-FDM, some members of Pauline family and friends.
We continue to accompany our sisters with prayers that the mystery which Mary embraced be their source of inspiration and guide as they strive to live out what they owned up in professing their vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. Wishing you all the best, Sisters!
