Day 5: Thanksgiving of Sister Eppie Brasil, OP as a Dominican Sister

We had Dinner for a Cause on July 17, 2017. People from near and far whose lives had been touched by Sister Eppie came to support Dinner for a Cause. What is the cause? The heart of Regina RICA: the Institute for Contemplation in Asia. This will be a venue for transformation through silence, stillness and simplicity in this world that is filled with stress. Finding God in RICA was written by Sister Eppie to share with us her experiences. It is simple and yet to find God we need to invest in TIME.
Come join us.

Day 2 Thanksgiving for 50 years of Sister Eppie

                                   K-Friends Joined Sr. Eppie in her golden Jubilee Celebration


Part of the five-day celebration of Sr. Eppie’s Golden Jubilee is a day dedicated for our K-Friends. They were brought to Regina RICA on July 14, 2017, for a pilgrimage to visit Our Lady Regina Rosarii and to celebrate with Sr. Eppie.

They had a mass presided by our Parish Priest Fr. Jun Suriven and concelebrated with Bishop George Rimando. A festive lunch followed at St. Joseph’s Hall. The Tuesday Regina Rosarii Assistants for Caring of K-Friends (TRACK) Volunteers spearheaded a short program after lunch, wherein they showcased their talents as well as the K-Friends to entertain Sr. Eppie and all her guests .

After the presentations, Sr. Neneng Marquillero, OP led the K-Friends to the Sanctuary of Universal Love and Devotion (SULOD) to pray in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

It was a memorable moment for our K friends and volunteers.

Visiting Mother Lucy and sisters in Malaybalay

Mother Lucy has been our coach, our guide and and our inspiration when Sister Eppie founded our new congregation with her new mission and apostolate.

We had a spirited time with the Carmelite sisters, a happy community.

When God calls, we go.

When God calls we go. Sr. Eppie heard the call to help the evacuees from Marawi City. So every where she went she campaigned hard with a talk and with silence over the plight of our Muslim and Christian brothers and sisters. We went to see and to experience their fears and their pain. We did not know whom and where to go but eventually the hand of God pointed the way. We were able to get in touch with a priest we had never met before. He brought us to the evacuation centers. They had food, water to drink and even to wash their clothes. They had mats. But it was hot and they lacked one thing fans. Rey gave us the tip and so we brought fans.  Look at the “cardboard fan” they were using until we gave them fans. Even though life is difficult see what a small fan can bring –  smiles in their faces.

We also visited home based refugees. We also gave the Diocese of Iligan for their crisis intervention funds to “de stress” the trauma caused by war. We helped with financial blessings that was sent for them through our generous donors, members and friends. Thank you to all who had helped.

May we share with all of you the joy that we have received through the smiles, hand shakes and even embraces from the people we met. It is when people are faced with dire need and deprivation that an act of kindness is appreciated the most. Photo credits: ReyBarn & Sr. Menchi20170605_095055
