Misiones urbanas en Filipinas.

On February 12th, a group of 35 missionaries had the experience of shearing their faith with most needed people. The mission was in the Parish of Sta. Perpetua, in Barangay San Jose, one of the poorest squatters in Manila.  In the morning they visited the houses of the Barangay, spent some time with each family reading the gospel and praying with them. It was a beautiful experience because the missionaries realized that they didn’t have to go out of Manila to find people who need someone to take them closer to God.

In the afternoon the YTM missionaries played different games with around 200 kids, followed by the catechism. The missionaries prepared a skit from a passage of the Gospel, gave an explanation after and had a question and answer session.

Later they had the “merienda” that consisted in giving some snacks to the kids who were very happy and enjoying this day with the missionaries.

YTM also gave contributed for the Parochial feeding program for children under 2 years old, offering the amount correspondent to a complete week of breakfast for 50 children.
To close the activity was the Holy Mass preceded by the parish priest Father Bong, who supported and encouraged the missionaries to continue working for the church.
