Last April 13 and 14, 2015 we finally pushed through with our much-anticipated employees’ outing. It was this time of the year wherein all employees and 3 OFM priests, namely, Fr. Reu Jose C. Galoy, our Parish Priest, Fr. Tasang Obico, our Parish Guardian and Fr. Serge Santos, our resident priest attended the event. Our destination was the Little Bridge Resort and Reflection Center in Lemery, Batangas. A 2-hour drive from SSAP, the resort boasts of several facilities like mid-size swimming pools, a beachfront, air-conditioned apartments, cabanas, huts, a basketball court a dining area and several spacious open areas used to hold team buildings and religious activities.
We started the day with a mass officiated by Fr. Serge Santos. Fr. Reu proceeded with the announcement of the 2-day sports activities and games. Distribution of the SSAP T-shirts with the the 40th anniversary theme was done in preparation for the sportsfest and fun games. The group was divided in two, the Green Team and Yellow Team. Each team battled for the most number of points garnered in basketball and volleyball. Winning points were likewise added to the total score of the group for the fun games which were facilitated by Nimfa and Jackie. Fr. Tassang also joined both the mini sportsfest and the battle of the videoke singers with Fr. Serge. The Green Team eventually won.
After dinner, a mini raffle/bingo was presided by Fr. Reu wherein Ms. Estrella Magnaye and Benjie Oriol won a twin-tub washing machine and mini refrigerator respectively. Another highlight of the occasion was the recognition given to our resident cook, Mr. Rey Benusa for his 27 years of employment with SSAP.
It was a most memorable and fun-filled activity that most of us believe is a heavenly way of recharging our weary minds and hearts through these bonding moments that everyone looks forward to every year.
Many, many thanks to our beloved parish priest, Fr. Reu, the architect of this very noteworthy and motivational event. We also extend our utmost appreciation and gratitude to all parishioners, friends and donors who, in one way or another made a significant contribution in order to make this event a very unforgettable one. Maraming salamat po! God bless you all! 1 FAITH, 1 PARISH & 1 FAMILY
