…There is still reason to rejoice and be glad!Date: November 3, 2020Posted by: Marionette Martinez
On 29 October 2020, the SPC Malate Community celebrated the 116th Foundation Anniversary of the Congregation in the Philippines.
Sr. Evangeline Anastacio, SPC, University President, recounts:
116 years ago, on this very day, October 29, the Sisters of St. Paul of Chartres arrived in the Philippines from Saigon upon the request of Bishop Fredrick Z. Rooker.
“The Sisters began with seven nuns in Dumaguete in 1904 and grew to more than 700 in the same century” (James B. Reuter, SJ, 2004). Our first seven Sisters’ sacrificing work has indeed borne much fruit!
Thank you, Lord, for calling me to be a part of your beloved Congregation!
