“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” - Luke 2:14Let us remember the reason for the season, the birth of Jesus, our savior.
Last November 28, we bade farewell and welcome to FMA sisters who are very dear to our hearts.
VIDES Philippines held a simple virtual celebration for its 26th anniversary yesterday, 28 November 2021.
The Brigada ng Panalangin for the month of November, which was attended by more than 30 participants, was led by representatives from the VIDES community in San Roque, Quezon City. Before beginning the community prayer, VIDES Delegate, Sr. Maria Socorro T. Bacani, FMA, presented a short video on the Season of Advent and highlighted the importance of preparing for the celebration of the birth of Christ and of welcoming Him to our homes.
As a way to help ease the burden of Filipinos this pandemic, VIDES Philippines partnered with organizations to bring rice and food items to underprivileged communities and sectors.

We invite you to join our Brigada ng Panalangin held every 24th of the month in commemoration of Mary Help of Christians. If you have a special intention or prayer request, just post a comment below or accomplish the form which may be found here.
We shall wholeheartedly include your intentions in our prayers.
As the Season of Creation continues, let’s have a throwback of our last Mangrove Planting in Mindoro in 2019. I know we all miss going to different places and planting mangrove seedlings for the community but for now, let us continue praying and caring for our common home in our own way.
The theme for this year is “A Home for All? Renewing the Oikos of God." Oikos is the Greek word for house, including the Earth, our common home, everyone living in it, and the web of connections that unites all living things in our common home.
Hope this inspires you to think of ways to do Earth-saving measures in your own way. Make a habit of caring for God’s creation!
Today, September 8, is the birthday of our Dearest Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary. May we always be inspired to emulate the love, faithfulness, and dedication she has shown to the Lord.
