Gathering of Religious with the Papal Nuncio and Advent Recollection in Guiuan, Samar
The feast of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception, December 8, 2019 marked a very important event for the people of Guiuan Eastern Samar. This day was the town´s fiesta at the same time the re-dedication of the Church officiated by the Papal Nuncio – Archbishop Gabriele Caccia.
The Church is one of the oldest Church in Philippines built in 1595 and was destroyed by the super typhoon Yolanda in 2013 and after six years, it’s only now it was restored through the efforts of the National Museum.
A few days later, the Catechists from different barangays together with other church organizations like Catholic Women’s League and the members of the Confraternity of the Our Lady of Perpetual Help in the parish had their one day Advent Recollection facilitated by sisters Rita Rodríguez and Rachel Lumain. The participants were open and participative. It was a very fruitful experience as they discovered newness in praying with the Word of God. They all enjoyed and were renewed in their faith. We are also very grateful to their generous self-giving, and all their efforts and sacrifices that makes the faith alive in Guiuan as they put their part in whatever role they have as catechists and being active members of different organizations in the Church.
