It’s November once again and Christmas is fast approaching. Gift shopping, preparations for Christmas dinners, parties, Noche Buena, and more, keep us busy and preoccupied during this busy season.
Wouldn’t it be good to pause for a while and give thought to our less fortunate brothers and sisters and see how we can share our blessings to them, as well? We know that there are many of you who would like to help out but may just not know how to volunteer or where to donate for a worthy cause.
The Hospital Ministry is one such channel. Aside from the weekly visits to the PGH Pediatrics Wards and sponsorship of medication to patients, we end the year with a bang with a Christmas activity – a mass led by Fr. Joel at the PGH Chapel followed by a gift giving to the patients for the aforementioned wards and students of Silahis ng Kalusugan (a DepEd school in the premises for students who are chronically ill and need continuous treatment). These gifts are goodie bags filled with toiletries, food items, slippers, multivitamins, toys, etc. that we know the patients and parents/caregivers need and surely appreciate. Lunch packs are also distributed to ensure that they have a good meal for the day.
This will be held this year on December 10 (Tuesday), 9am – 12pm. If you would like to inquire, volunteer, or donate, please feel free to drop by the parish office and look for Nimfa Dumago. You can also reach her at 8438830.
We look forward to more parishioners joining and helping out this year!
