It was last August 9, Wednesday when the SMAD Educative community celebrated the Feast day of Saint Candida Maria de Jesus, the Mother Foundress of the Hijas de Jesus Congregation in which the F.I. sisters and our community belong. There was a Holy Mass attended by all members of the community and this year’s invited guests: the SHJ Pastoral leaders of their GKK community. The mass started at 8 o’clock in the morning at the Sacred Heart of Jesus Chapel, beside the school campus. It was presided by Msgr. Paul Cuison.
After the mass was a short audio-visual presentation by Mrs. Fatima Lyziel Montebon as she impart to the invited guests the life of Saint Candida and the life of our F.I. sisters as a community in the congregation.
Right after the presentation they proceeded to the school cafeteria for the program of the feast day. Hosted by Mrs. Fatima Lyziel Montebon and Mr. James Harold Lemosnero, there were question and answer portion in which trivia were actively answered by the guests. There were also agape and sharing. Snacks were served and there was a campus tour wherein the guests were able to explore the school and see its facilities.
The activity ended at 11 o’clock in the morning.
