Humility in Career
by Tintin San Juan, Faith In Action (FIA)
I haven’t been part of the Parish for a long time. I joined Single Young Adults (SYA) in March 2009 and Faith in Action upon its inception in 2016. I have teamed in SYA, joined the Hospital and Prison Ministries in their outreaches, and other activities that have peaked my interest.

‘Random Thoughts,’by Peachy Maramba
When one thinks of HUMILITY (the state or quality of being humble – lowly, modest, unpretentious) one invariably thinks of our dear St. Francis of Assisi. This is because he is considered by many, if not the whole world, to be the humblest man in Christendom.
