The Parish Social Services & Development Ministry (PSSDM) held their Monthly Meeting last June 10, 2018, 2:00pm at the Ground Floor of our Parish Formation Center.

The meeting started with opening prayer led by Sis Hilda, followed by the Sunday’s Gospel Reading by Sis. Julie (Mk 3:20-35), and the Exegesis of our beloved Parish Priest, Msgr. Nestor C. Cerbo on the said Gospel’s Theme: “Sa Pakikibaka Natin Laban Sa Pwersa ng Masama, Mayroong Mga Kontra at Mayroon Ding Katulong Na Sanhi Ng Ating Pagwawagi” was read by myself. Personal reflections were shared by Sis Monica, Sis Bernadette and Bro. Boy.
Nowadays, we really live in a difficult environment, and it’s critical to work and stay away from every form of evil. Therefore, we should continually pray that the favor of God and the Holy Spirit will rest on us. He is only the one who can change circumstances, protect us from harm, and deliver us from all evil around us. If our ultimate goal is to please and delight our Lord and we will never go wrong.
