    Message from Brother Gerardo Laguartilla

    "My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, my Spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for He has looked with favor" Lk 1:49

    I thank the good Lord for the gift of Vocation and the Provincial Council of the Congregation of the Missionaries of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus, Atlantic Province, Toronto, Ontario and for the gift of each and every of you here in this parish community.

    In special way, I would like to thank our beloved Pastor, Fr. Xavier De Pinto, Evelyn Vallada & Family, Louisa Wu, Janet Kabisan, Nenita Mackenzie, the Knights of Columbus, and the Catholic Women's League for organizing the thanksgiving and farewell party. I also would like to thank the Parish Pastoral Council, the Ministries and Organizations, the Serra Vocation Club, our Office and Household Community Archbishop Larry & Fr. Joseph, Nadine, Chico, Helee, Antonio and Merly & Coliin Cox and the many benefactors and friends. This is not the time to be sad, this is the time to be thankful and to celebrate God's goodness to all of us. Again, I would like to thank you all for all your love and care, for all your prayers and support.

    Maraming Salamat po, Muchisimas Gracias, Molte Grazie, Xie xie, Mercie, Obrigado, Dhanyavaad.
