SLRP Fiesta 2010 Was One Big Family Gathering
It was a bright sunny morning and a very memorable occasion as the parish celebrated its 23rd fiesta anniversary. Everyone came out in their native Filipino costumes to share with heaven and all the saints this glorious day. Dancing rhythmically the Caracol to the pounding of drums provided by the parish youth, everyone, young and old alike, gyrated their hips and swayed their bodies to the festive ati-atihan sounds as if telling everyone that "this is the day the Lord has made, let us all rejoice and be glad!"
The Caracol procession snaked its way around the parish under the glorious rays of the morning sun. This was followed by the generosity of benevolent parishioners and parish ministries and organizations as they shared local delicacies and kakanin to the famished delight of all participants.
As we looked back to a year ago when Typhoon Ondoy revealed to us nature's destructive power, this day, in contrast, showed God's all loving grandeur and kindness.
