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.
