The Feast of the Holy reminds us that we “belong by a gracious choice to the family of the Blessed Mary, Mother of God. In her name we are called Marists.”
It was the first time that the Marist communities and other branches of the Marist Family could not join and gather together in celebration as one big family because of the COVID-19 pandemic. But we remain united in prayer and in spirit.
In Davao, the Cerdon International Novitiate Community in Eden joined the celebration with the St. Peter Chanel Formation Community in Davao. The Holy Eucharist was officiated by Fr Lionel Mechavez and Fr Gil Casio delivered a homily. Some close friends and Fr Gil’s mother attended the celebration. The creative programme was organised by the students.
