In honor of Blessed Alberione

The 52nd Death Anniversary of Blessed James Alberione, Founder of the Pauline Family was celebrated last November 25, 2023 at Divine Master Convent in Antipolo City.

The gathering was hosted this year by the PDDM Sisters who prepared a Filipino fiesta-themed celebration. They highlighted the event with a Misa ng Bayang Pilipino, an inculturated Filipino Mass, presided by Rev. Fr. Mario Sobrejuanite, Provincial Superior of the Society of St. Paul Philippine-Macau Province.

Each of the Pauline congregations and institutes-- Society of St. Paul, Daughters of St. Paul, Disciples of the Divine Master, Sisters of the Good Shepherd, Institutes of Our Lady of Annunciation and St. Gabriel the Archangel, and Association of Pauline Cooperators, was well-represented.

After a sumptuous lunch and table fellowship, a program which features presentations, games and surprises followed. Guided by the theme "Pamilyang Sama-samang Nagdiriwang ng Pasasalamat Kasama ng Ating Tagapagtatag Beato Alberione", each Pauline congregation and institute showed their talents through dances and songs.

The gathering concluded with the singing of the hymn for the glorification of Blessed James Alberione and the song Scio cui Credidi. Then, Rev. Fr. Celso Godilano, SSP gave everyone the final blessing.
