July Pastoral Ministries

Feeding for the Poor

This July, we had the following ministries done. They are, however, our regular monthly pastoral ministries.

Santuario Corporal Works of Mercy

Every second Friday of the month, Santuario Eucaristico offers free medico-dental clinic and feeding for the poor. Most of those who come for the clinic and for the feeding are from other barangays and parishes in the city. Some come from far places like Indahag, Lumbia, Iponan. This ministry has become a refuge, a sanctuary especially for the poor as they come here regularly and even bring their relatives, friends and neighbors with them sharing the good news about God’s care for the needy.

On July 11, there were more than a hundred people came for the clinic and the feeding. There were 24 student nurses and fresh graduates of Nursing from Xavier University volunteered. They were called and organized by Christine Tongco. Soldiers of of the Light Armor Cavalry from Camp Evangelista, Patag also came to assist. They have been helping out for many months already.  Fore information about this ministry, please read the articles posted here: Medical Services and Feeding Program.


Youth Adoration Continued

The Eucharistic Youth Coordinating Council and some members of our parish youth organizations continue their monthly adoration before the Blessed Sacrament exposed every 2nd Friday. This is also an occasion for them to share their faith and strengthen their love of God. This adoration is facilitated by their Spiritual Director, Fr. Lennen Deciar, SSS.


People’s Eucharistic League Formation Continued

The People’s Eucharistic League (PEL), which is an association under the directorship of the Blessed Sacrament Fathers and Brothers, is undergoing a formation every 2nd Saturday of the month. They are taught about the Eucharist in the understanding our holy founder, St. Peter Julian Eymard. This is given by Fr. Lennen, their Spiritual Director.  If you would like to become an associate, please come for an orientation every 4th Saturday of the month at 8:30 am at the Formation Center. The PEL associates commit to adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament exposed at Santuario Eucaristico.


Santuario Masses and Adoration Live in the Internet

Our daily Masses, Liturgy of the Hours and Adoration can now be seen live in the internet over our shrine website, I would like to ask to request everyone to help us promote and share our website through text, facebook, twitter, email, etc. This site is one of our ways of communicating to the world our message of God’s Love through Jesus in the Eucharist. By promoting our website then, is your participation in our evangelization ministry.


Ceiling Construction Started

The renovation of our new ceiling has started. Please do continue to pray, and even pray harder that God may inspire and touch the hearts of many people to donate for this project. As of July 12, we received a total donation of 260,000 pesos. The total cost of the construction is more or less 3,000,000 pesos.

If you like to help by sharing your financial blessings, please give your donation to our parish office.
