RP18 Renewal of Commitment

On September 5, 2013, a Eucharistic celebration was held at the Columban Lay Mission House, Cubao to mark the wonderful event that is the Renewal of Commitment of Gertrudes Samson (Quezon City), Jonah Jane Enterina (Cagayan de Oro) and Rosalia Basada (Samar).  RP18 as they are collectively known were assigned to the Region of Britain for their first term from 2010 until they came home in May 2013.  They are being re-assigned to Brtain for their second term. If all goes well with their visa application, they will return to Britain on October 1, 2013.

The mass was presided by Fr. Raymond Husband.  Instead of the usual homily,  RP18 shared why they are returning to Britain.  A full video will be published here soon.
