F.I. REGIONAL ENCOUNTER IN ILOILO

DSCF2672

One week after the regional encounter held in Manresa Retreat House in Quezon City, the second regional encounter took place at the Colegio de las Hijas de Jesus in Iloilo City.  Attending this encounter were the sisters from the Panay-Guimaras community and the sisters from Cebu, El Salvador and Lasang.

 

While the topics were serious and questions raised during the discussions were penetrating, the ambience was one of sisterhood.  That has always been the magic of any gathering at Hijas – the sense of being “home”, the sisters wanting to know what the others have been doing, interest in any news Sr. Thelma has to give, and of course the food to warm our stomachs.

Thank you is so inadequate for the generous hospitality of Sr. Georgette, Sr. Nilda Genovate, all the sisters of Iloilo City.  A special “kudos” to Sr. Cecilia Sequio and her team of cooks. All those who took part in the encounter had an experience of filiation-fraternity in action, and one is left more than grateful for everything that happened.
