Canonical Visit to Province of St. Simon Stock (Mindanao)

The National Council of the Lay Carmelites of the Philippines made their way to Mindanao on May 14 - 16 to visit the local communities of the TOC in Agusan del Sur. Sis. Sally Castro, TOC (National Coordinator) and Bro. Ruel Santos, TOC (2nd Councilor) visited the TOCs of Rosario, San Francisco, and Prosperidad. They stayed at the Carmelite friary in San Francisco, Agusan del Sur through the kindness of Fr. Estong Malandac, OCarm. The two met the communities on May 15 at the GKK Hall of the Sacred Heart Parish which is supervised by the Carmelite friars. The status of each communities was discussed and then a re-echoing of the Zarephath Fund (where the communities were amenable to the scheme) and on the Formation Training Seminar that was given to the Luzon communities. The manner of praying the Liturgy of the Hours was also presented to the body. The meeting ended around 5 pm and the National Council representatives made their flight back to Manila the next day.
