Sr. Mary Mae Santorce Makes her First Vows as an Hija de Jesus



108TH Death Anniversary of Mother Foundress and First Profession of Mary Mae Santorce. August 9, 2020 is special day for all Hijas de Jesus and the family of Mother Candida. We celebrate with great joy and thanksgiving this occasion remembering the life of St. Candida which is worthy of emulation.


We are all one in celebrating the gift of vocation of Sr.Mary Mae Santorce as she made her first vows as an Hija de Jesus in a Eucharistic celebration live-streamed from El Rosarillo Chapel, Manresa School, Parañaque City. The Mass presider was Fr. Joeffrey Brian Catuiran, a cousin of Sr. Mary Mae, parish priest of St. Ignatius Parish in Taguig City. Because of this special time of the pandemic, the attendees were limited to the Sisters in the residence of Manresa School, however, through modern technology, the Mass has reached many sisters and friends far and wide across the world, as well as the family of Sr. Mary Mae, world.
