Feast of St. Anthony of Padua!
We, the PDDM Sisters from different communities in the Philippines, gathered last June 13, 2018 at Alberione Center in Quezon City. This mememorial feast of St. Anthony is also for us a celebration of the Feastday of our provincial superior, Sr. M. Anthony Basa, who chose St. Anthony de Padua as her patron saint.
The celebration opened with the Holy Eucharist which was presided by Rev. Fr. Jose Aripio, Provincial Superior of the Society of St. Paul. Along with this, was the exhibit that featured the sisters’ apostolic innovations and creativities. It included the new designs of vestments for the ordained ministers, altar vessels, tabernacles, paintings, ecological creativities, among others.
In the afternoon, we got together in a celebration of vespers led by the community of the provincial team. The celebration continued after with a short program, greetings and gift giving of sisters from different communities, some members of the APC-FDM and some close friends of Sr. M. Anthony and then, the community shared a meal in a banquet.
