National Officers Visit Sangley Point, August 4, 2013

National Adviser Patsy Henson and Vice President for Luzon Mely Diaz visited Our Lady of Naval Parish in Sangley Point Naval Base, Cavite on August 4, 2013. Our MBMG chapter is the regular sponsor of the First Sunday Mass, and on this occasion, eight new members were inducted.

Chapter President Edith Loria met the National officers before the 7 am Mass and showed them the improvements that have been made in the Chapel since the last visit of the officers two years ago.  There is a beautiful life size statue of Our Lady of Naval to the right of the main chapel that is the focus of much devotion. The main chapel itself has been completely renovated.  Our members clean the chapel every Saturday and are responsible for maintaining the vestments and altar linen.

It was a joyous visit!  Parish Priest Fr Simon Arana, a native of Iloilo, is an energetic shepherd, especially of the youth.  During the Mass, new members of the Hijas de Maria were also inducted, very young girls already pledging to live lives with our Blessed Mother as their guide.  Patsy and Mely spoke to some of the young girls, and urged them to join MBMG when they are a bit older. 

In remarks before the final blessing, Fr. Simon expressed his gratitude for the support that MBMG has given to priests all over the Philippines and especially Our Lady of Naval Parish.  The National officers were pleased that this relatively new chapter is making a difference in the Parish and community that they serve.
