In St. Teresa of Calcutta's words, "Faith in action is Love - and Love in action is service." This month, we offered service to our sick brothers and sisters who need medical help through our Mass for the Sick and Medical Clinic last August 11, 2017. The Mass for the Sick was presided by Fr. Muriel Uy, SSS at 8:00am. The Sacrament of Annointing was granted to all our sick brothers and sisters who attended the mass. Afterwards followed the clinic where there were more than 50 patients who came for aid and was warmly attended by our volunteers. With grateful hearts, we thank our volunteer nurses and doctors for another successful Medical help to our brothers and sisters!

Blood-Letting Activity March 2017

Mar 27, 2017 | [post_view] Views

It is inspiring to see how superheroes help save people's lives, but actually we can be real heroes ourselves. When you give blood, you save not only one life but as many as three lives. This month, Santuario Eucaristico in collaboration with Northern Mindanao Medical Center volunteer doctors and nurses successfully conducted a Blood-Letting Activity last March 22, 2017 in our parish. When we donate blood, we give someone another smile, another hug, another chance to be with their family and friends again. In simple ways we can, Santuario aims to further help people in need. In this activity, we had 16 heroes who donated their blood in our blood bank. Their donation will be reserved for need or emergency purposes. As we often have people coming to our office for medical help. We thank all our volunteers who generously lend their arms and found the hero in them. May the Lord bless you a hundred fold!

Santuario Celebrates 25th World Day of the Sick

Feb 14, 2017 | [post_view] Views

Last February 11, we had a Special Mass for the Sick and Medical and Dental Clinic in celebration to the 25th World Day of the Sick held on the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. In Pope Francis' message for the 25th World Day of the Sick, he stated: "On this Twenty-fifth World Day of the Sick, I once more offer my prayerful support and encouragement to physicians, nurses, volunteers and all those consecrated men and women committed to serving the sick and those in need. I also embrace the ecclesial and civil institutions working to this end, and the families who take loving care of their sick. I pray that all may be ever joyous signs of the presence of God’s love and imitate the luminous testimony of so many friends of God, including Saint John of God and Saint Camillus de’ Lellis, the patrons of hospitals and healthcare workers, and Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta, missionary of God’s love." In response to this call, we had our Special Mass for the Sick that was celebrated at 8:00am where our sick brothers and sisters were granted the Sacrament of Healing: Anointing of the Sick during the mass. Then followed by the Medical and Dental Clinic which our parish usually do every month at 9:00am. Read the Message of Pope Francis for the 25th World Day of the Sick here.

Year of the Poor Feeding

Mar 29, 2015 | [post_view] Views

Part of Santuario Eucaristico’s Social Apostolate is the Feeding for the Poor which is done every third Friday of the monthly.  Since the month of March in the Archdiocese of Cagayan de Oro is Social Action Month, Santuario Eucaristico held an extension of its feeding program to another parish. On March 20, another team led by Fr. Joel Lasutaz, SSS with our partner, the Philippine Army, Light Armor Cavalry stationed at Camp Evangelista, Cagayan de Oro went to Sito Camagon and Kamingawan, Brgy. Patag, Opol, Misamis Oriental to share food and to distribute rice to the people.  There were 109 families who came. Games for children gave the program some fun. Those who came ate their fill of the food that was prepared and received 2 kilos of rice and a few noodles and canned goods. These 2 sitios are located 9 km away from the highway up the mountains of Misamis Oriental. The people here are very seldom visited because of its distance and its rough road. What we did for them made them feel that the Church cares for them and that God loves them. This was the message we brought. We are hoping that this feeding and rice distribution program will truly become one of our regular apostolates not just a Year of the Poor Feeding as we continue to respond to Pope Francis call to go out and fight indifference in our society.

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.
