Bros. Fernando and Paul return to Rome

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAfter completing their 2 months Marist Mission Exposure in the Philippines, Bros. Fernando and Paul return to Rome on 10th September 2013.

During these 2 months, they had a chance to experience the life and apostolates of the Marists in Davao and Digos. In Davao, they worked at Balay Pasilungan (a home for street boys); caring for the old and sick at the Missionaries of Charity Centre and in Campus Ministry for Non-sectarian schools by facilitating recollections. In Matti, they  experienced life in the Parish visiting people, assisting in liturgical celebrations as well as living with a Filipino family.

On the 9th September, a simple gathering was held to thank and farewell them before they go back to Rome. They expressed their gratitude to all Marists and Filipinos who welcomed and accepted them with joy. Both of them shared that their time was a happy and grace-filled moments with so much learning and beautiful memories to take. This experience also helped them to strengthen their Marist vocation and inspire them to be missionaries of love and mercy.

We are also thankful for what they are and what they have contributed to the District and to the people they have served. Wish them every blessing as they go back to their formation and theological studies in Rome.

Thank you Bros. Fernando and Paul!
