The Charism of Mo. Candida is alive in Angono, Rizal

 

St. Candida Chapel was blessed this morning May 31, 2021, as part of the 176th birthday celebration of St Candida.

 

Barrio Minahang Nato of Angono Rizal was once an outreach area of the FI sisters in Angono Rizal. They formed Basic Ecclesial groups in that place and in nearby Barangays. Minahang Bato... became one of the center places for BEC faith sharing and weekly masses...This area is quite far from the Angono town center and the Parish Church so the BEC groups decided to make their own chapel and named it in honor of St. Candida.

They knew Mo. Candida through the FI sisters who accompanied their faith journey. Srs. Martha Nicholas, Fe Teodosio, Dionisia Quela, Rosemarie Gaitan, Rosa Ortega, and the rest of the sisters who were assigned in Angono Rizal.

Now that we left Angono...St. Candida remained in the hearts of the people, especially the poor. So they decided to make St. Candida to be the patroness of their Area Chapel.
