Makati City, the Philippines, 29 June2019 -- Representatives of the different branches of the Salesian Family in the Philippines North Province (FIN) attended a Forum on the Spirituality of Stewardship on 29 June 2019 at the Roozen Hall in St. John Bosco Parish, Makati City. 47 participants braved the rain and heavy traffic to listen and interact with the Most. Rev. Broderick S. Pabillo, D.D., Auxiliary Bishop of Manila, the forum’s guest speaker.
Bishop Pabillo emphasized that we are all called to be stewards of our Divine Master. As members of the Church, we are called to give our time, talent, or treasure as a way of tithing with the goal of eliminating the Arancel system. Stewardship is a way of life, a spirituality, and it covers all aspects of our life and not just our money.
The Salesian Family of the Philippines North Province is composed of the Salesians of Don Bosco (SDB), the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians (FMA), the Caritas Sisters of Jesus (SCG), the Salesian Cooperators (ASC), the Volunteers of Don Bosco (VDB), the Association of Mary Help of Christians (ADMA), the Philippine Federation of Don Bosco Past Pupils, the Past Pupils of FMA (FMAPP), and the Associacion Damas Salesianas (ADS).
