On June 13, the Community celebrated the feast of St. Anthony, the patron saint of the Anthonian Institute. The solemn mass was presided by the Superior who stressed on the nature of each one's missionary calling to evangelize and to be a true disciple like the holy saint who performed so many miracles because of his intimacy with the Lord Jesus Christ. 


After the holy mass, the bread of St. Anthony was blessed and then distributed to all those who attended the celebration. Everyone celebrated further with the outpouring of blessings through sharing of their home-cooked delicacy during dinner.

This celebration came as a culminating activity of the novena masses celebrated prior to the feast where each day's sponsor offered various commodities that were later brought to the Community's in-house Ukranian refugees. Everyone gave thanks to God through the generosity of St. Anthony who never left those who are generous donors without something to share. Viva Santo Antonio!
