FIRST LAUNCHING OF FINANCIAL SUSTAINABILITY PROGRAM
The Salvatorian School run by the Salvatorian Sisters in Cebu City was the venue for the first Launching of the 1st Financial Sustainability Program of the Philippine Region. The said launching was held on September 8, 2012, the birthday of our Blessed Mother. Members of the Salvatorian Sisters' community, Salvatorian School children with their parents, benefactors and friends graced the occasion. Spring Rain headed by Ms. Glenda Antonio with her staff, were there to give full support.
The program began with an opening prayer led by the kindergarten pupils of Salvatorian School. The kids with such innocence and spontaneity were indeed adorable and very inspiring to watch as they led the audience in praying the Hail Mary Song with choreography. Thanks to Sr. Alona, SDS, school principal and Sr. Ma. Teresa, SDS for their patience and love to train, assist the children in every way for this activity. Sr. Marianne, SDS, Cebu community coordinator gave the welcome address while intermission numbers were provided in between presentations.
