Happy Fiesta 2013!

As part of our Diamond Jubilee celebration, this year’s parish fiesta was truly a wonderful and memorable event. Although we encountered minor problems with the newly renovated Parish Center during Children’s Day and fiesta dinner, this year’s fiesta was generally a success. It is in this regard that I would like to thank the people involved in making our various fiesta activities successful and making my work so much easier to handle. First of all, let me thank Rene Ledesma and Susan Concepcion for spearheading this year’s fiesta as co-chairpersons, Fr. Joel and the pastoral team for guiding us in all our activities; guest priests, choirs and liturgical committee for the novena masses, CWL members for handling Libreng Almusal, medical mission, mass baptism, mass confirmation and mass wedding; hospital and healthcare ministries for helping in our hospital and read more from July 7, 2013 PB>>>>>

Diamond Jubilee Prayer

Heavenly Father, we praise your glorious name for the blessings you have given to our Faith-family in Santuario de San Antonio. As we celebrate our 60th Founding Anniversary, we place once again our full trust in you. We thank you for the faith, love and hope that you have showered unto us. As we look back with gratitude in our
hearts, we cannot but say “Thank You” for the manifold graces that you have gratuitously shared to all our families.

Lord Jesus Christ, beloved of the Father, thank you for the continued inspiration given us. Despite our many shortcomings, you have embraced us with so much love and consolation. Continue to guide us to become faithful sons and daughters of the Father like You. Be with us always and protect every one of us. 0 Holy Spirit, the Consoler, strengthen always our families to withstand all the difficulties that may come along our way. Continue to bless and unify us so that we can truly achieve the wisdom and ideals you have enshrined in our hearts as a worshipping, working, serving and responding community.

May the Blessed Mother Mary, ever virgin, with St. Anthony of Padua, our beloved patron and protector; and San Pedro Bautista, the spiritual Guardian of the friars who took care of us, intercede for us, now and forever. Amen.
