A Simple Celebration for a Special Servant: Sr. Leonila's 35th Anniversary in the Religious Profession

This year, as the Catholic Church in the Philippines celebrates the Year of the Clergy and Consecrated Persons, Colegio de Santa Ana gave a surprise for the Head of Center for Christian Formation, Sr. Leonila B. Guerra, fma, in celebration of her 35th Anniversary in the Religious Profession. She had her First Profession on March 25, 1983. 

Part one of the celebration was a simple blessing after the First Friday Mass (Sept. 7) followed by giving of flowers. Part two, held on September 10, was a simple gathering with special messages from Sir Gener Espino and Mrs. Lennie A. Montevirgen, a song number led by Mr. Robbie Gatpayat, Mr. Bernard Nasayao, and Ms. Clarence Jongaya with the whole CDSA community, giving of gifts, and a video presentation while food is distributed. 

Sr. Leonila is a member of the congregation of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians (Figlie di Maria Ausiliatrice) or the Salesian Sisters of St. John Bosco. She joined Colegio de Santa Ana in 2016.

Your CDSA family loves you Sr. Leonila! May God bless you with more years to serve Him and His people.
