The School Year 2015-2016 may be ending but Manresa School continues to reach out to our brothers and sisters in the adopted sites.
Last March 6, 118th birthday of Bl. Ma. Antonia Bandres, the Basic Ecclesial Community (BEC) leaders of Lupang Hinirang and Area 7 had their Lenten recollection at the Pastoral Center in 4th Estate, Parañaque.
This was followed by the feeding and gift-giving to 40 children. The kids were given backpacks and school supplies, courtesy of Shotoku School and Akinosho Kindergarten in Hayama, Japan.
A week after, March 13, the Candida Maria Foundation of Manresa School had its medical mission in Naic, Cavite. The participants were able to serve 358 patients, giving them medical consultation, free medicines and snacks. Six doctors, five nurses and other volunteers from the sisters, teachers and staff of Manresa School.
The recipients, as well as the Medical Mission Team and Manresa School administration and Hijas de Jesus sisters, expressed their gratitude for the generosity of all who in one way or another had shared their resources to help our brothers and sisters in need. These activities and gestures of solidarity made palpable and concrete the mercy and compassion of God.
