FEAST OF OUR LADY OF APOSTLES!

Today is the Feast of Our Lady of Apostles. Today all the Sisters of Our Lady of Apostles, O.L.A and the Friends of OLA Sisters, FOLAs all over the world gathered together in prayer to celebrate the feast of our Congregation on the eve of Pentecost. Like the Apostles, we await "with Mary the Mother of Jesus" (Acts 1:14) in prayer and meditation in the cenacle...always attentive to the Spirit of Pentecost.

The OLA Sisters and FOLAs in all our six units in the province in union with the whole Congregation, began the celebration with a thanksgiving Mass. During the mass, all the OLA Sisters re consecrated themselves to Our Lady of Apostles and then sang the Anthem 'Queen of Apostles". Before the final blessing, every one present at the mass received a symbolic gift and fruit of the Holy Spirit that will empower us to testify amoung our brothers and sisters in the world.

After the final blessing, we all gather for a group photograph and continued with the family celebration with plenty to eat and drink.  May Our Lady of Apostles continue to intercede for us all. Amen!
