Servants of the Lord Prayer Group, Pag-ibig Sa Diyos Catholic Community St. Peregrine Shrine, National Highway, Muntinlupa City Servants of the Lord Prayer Group Celebrates 15th Anniversary By Sis. Olive Bernardo “For all You’ve done, for all You’re going to do ... we give You thanks and we lift our praise to You ...” are the words and the song in every SOLPG member’s heart, as it celebrates its 15 years of existence. 1992 June 3, Tito Soy and Tita Say

With focus on what the Lord has done to SOLPG, the anniversary was celebrated in two consecutive Tuesdays of July – July 24, 2007 when there was the celebration of the Holy Eucharist and July 31 when the Prayer Group had the format of a Lord’s Day celebration. Fr. Noel Cruz, OLLSM who was the first spiritual adviser of SOLPG presided over the Thanksgiving Mass. The prayer group was blessed also on that day by the presence of COE Tito Nandy and Tita Letty Guevarra. The Lord’s Day Celebration, indeed gave an atmosphere of a ‘family gathering or a family reunion’ with God rightly placed at the center. Each member of a household sat together in one table, where they ‘broke bread’ and ‘shared wine’. With prayers led by PGC Bro. Ed (as father) and Sis. Nette (as mother), SOLPG family renewed their love and commitment to brothers and sisters, as Christ has commanded us to do. In the middle of the ceremony, fellowshipping ensued --- food was bountiful (generously shared by everyone); raffle prizes were given away; and sharing of interesting facts about one’s life filled the place. Gracing the occasion, PE Tito Dennis and Tita Dulce Abcede not only poured baskets of santol but also “food for thought” as Tito Dennis encouraged everyone to stay in community and be in love and unity with each other. Fr. Ador Javier, Parish Priest of St. Peregrine and Bro. Ed Ella also gave their ‘pabaon’ messages. 15 years of blessings and graces! We praise and thank God for all the events and people that have helped and continue to help the prayer group to grow and mature in Christ: •

Then PE Tito Lorry/ Tita Simple Buhain planned for the formation of a new prayer group in Muntinlupa-San Pedro. On May 27, 1992, Don Bosco PG approved the plan, relinquishing its members who reside near the area except those who are holding CORE position at that time. Tito Soy and Tita Say Macatangay of DBPG were appointed as the couple shepherd while SOLPG was under formation. July 29, 1992 the Prayer Group was given accreditation to be one of the prayer groups of Pag-ibig Sa Diyos Catholic Community.
