Corporal Works of Mercy – Holy Communion with the Poor

To fulfill our mission of responding to the hungers of the human family especially the poor and the weak by doing the Corporal Works of Mercy out of love of God, this coming July 12, the second Friday of the Month is our monthly schedule of our 2 major Social Apostolates namely, the Medico-Dental Clinic (pastoral care for the sick) and the Feeding Program for the Poor. Corporal Works of Mercy through The Healing Mass for the Sick We will begin the day with the usual Healing Mass, which is liturgically called as Mass for the Sick. This Holy Eucharist, the source of the Corporal Works of Mercy, will be celebrated in Cebuano and presided by our newly ordained priest, Fr. Marlon Reyes, SSS who usually gives deep and inspiring homilies. In this Mass, all the sick are lifted up to God especially those who are participating in the celebration and our parishioners. The Mass-goers write the names of their sick relatives and friends in a record book, which is offered along with the offering of Bread and Wine during the Presentation of the Gifts or the Offertory. This book is placed at the side of the Altar. The Mass continues as usual. After the Mass, the people are called to the center aisles to line up for the laying-on of hands. The presider prays over on each one so that all their infirmities, be it spiritual, physical, emotional, psychological and social sickness may find healing by the power of the Holy Spirit. We use a Trinitarian Formula which we draft ourselves: “Loving Father, send your Holy Spirit upon your servant and heal all his/her infirmities through Christ our Lord. Amen.” This is just a simple formula and yet filled with faith and conviction that God cares for His people and He heals them for He is a Loving God.  This Mass, therefore, is an expression of our faith that true healing comes from God and that medical practitioners are God’s instruments. The Free Medico-Dental Clinic – one of our Corporal Works of Mercy While others are still lining up for the healing, the Medico-Dental Clinic is opened. People from all walks of life especially the poor, registers for the free medical consultation and free medicine and vitamins. We, however, ask for a very small registration fee of 10 pesos, equivalent to $.04. This is for them to feel that they at least paid for the medical consultation and medicines and not just given as dole out.  It is, in a way, giving them some sense of dignity. Though many come from other parishes, they are always welcome to receive our services. The corporal works of mercy inspires us to also welcome non-Catholics and non-Christians. This clinic is open from 9:00 am until 12:00 noon. Those who are attending to them are volunteer doctors and nurses. Some are student nurses. Our Pastoral Care for the Sick team which is composed of 2 committees, the Medico-Dental Team headed by Edna Eugenio, MD and the Parish Community Health Team headed by Zuziez Rosete, RN, handles this program that fulfills the corporal works of mercy of the parish. The Feeding Program for the Poor Our corporal works of mercy this day extends until 11:00 o’clock with another program for the poor.  Some of those who received our free medical services stayed and together with our poor parishioners they are given free lunch. The food is prepared by the Social Apostolate Commission headed by Lingling Buzon who is also our San Roque Chapel Animator. She coordinates the parish corporal works of mercy ministries. Those who come for the feeding are children...

Living Out the Kingly Mission of Jesus through the Feeding and Medico-Dental Program

Living Out the Kingly Mission of Jesus through the Feeding and Medico-Dental Program

One way to lead God’s people to Jesus in the Holy Eucharist, Santuario Eucaristico has outreach programs which serve the needs of the community, especially the poor and the weak, in a meaningful way. At present, programs being implemented through the Parish Service Committee are the Feeding Program, the Medico-Dental Mission, and the recently launched Blood Donation Program which incorporates the Community Health Program and Rice Distribution Program. Started last 2011 before Typhoon Sendong devastated Cagayan de Oro City, the feeding program initially served the indigent people living under the Maharlika Bridge which is located near the Shrine. Mrs. Norma Serada is in charge of preparing the food to be served while Mrs. Lolita “Ling” Buzon is in charge of distributing the food together with the volunteers and workers of San Roque Chapel in Patag, Cagayan de Oro City, one of the chapels under the Shrine’s jurisdiction. Currently, beneficiaries of the program includes the indigents living near the Shrine and street people since most of the residents living under the Maharlika Bridge which homes were destroyed by Typhoon Sendong are now relocated in different areas of the city. However, some of them still goes to the Shrine at 11 A.M. every 2nd Friday to avail of the free lunch. Most beneficiaries are children and families. Donors are the parishioners and other kind hearted individuals who donate in cash or in kind. One hundred individuals benefit the feeding program of the Shrine. Originally, the Feeding Program was scheduled every 3rd Friday of the month but was changed to 2nd Friday so that beneficiaries can also avail of the other program of the Shrine which is the Medical and Dental Clinic. The Medical and Dental Mission is spearheaded by Dr. Edna Shiela B. Eugenio of the Department of Health who is also an active officer of the Shrine as the Assistant Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) Chair and supported by other medical doctors and nurses who voluntarily serve and offer their services for free. Among the services made available are free consultations and check up as well as free medicines. The Medical and Dental Mission starts after the Healing Mass at 8 A.M. then followed at 11 A.M. with the Feeding Program every 2nd Friday of the month. Join us and be part of living out the Kingly Mission of Jesus. For details, you can visit the Shrine at R.N. Pelaez Blvd., Kauswagan, Cagayan de Oro City or contact us at +63-88-22-724162.
