Something NEW!!!

Before we had sleeping St. Joseph pillow now we have The Holy Family sleeping pillow.
Imagine after travelling a long desert road and perhaps passing rocky hills….Mary was very tired and in pain and Joseph was taking care of Mary and the baby in her womb. Finally they find a place, a manger.
After the birth of Jesus and perhaps after the visit of the shepherds now they could rest in heavenly peace. Look at the care in the hands of Mary holding Jesus and look at the protective hands of Joseph lovingly protecting Mary and Jesus. May such great love flow in your families too.
At this time this pillow can only be found in the motherhouse Regina Rosarii Center of Contemplation in 70 Scout Fernandez St. Quezon City and Regina RICA in Barangay Sampaloc, Tanay, Rizal. I say AT THIS TIME because I am sure people will copy this pillow design.
If you like to see the 6 feet statue COME TO REGINA RICA in Tanay.

Advent Recollection at Regina Motherhouse


Every Advent reminds us that the clock is running. Advent stirs up our yearnings to harmonious relationships and for an environment of wholeness in which everything works right. We fragment our energy into different demands of life: family and career, personal and social life, justice and mercy, etc. we must wait for Jesus to come into integrate our frustrations and our hopes. We are building with the expectations that he will come. This Advent and Christmas, celebrate together that He who come, will come!

5 days Challenge for Sr. Eppie in Tagum City

Imagine a house becoming a contemplative center in 5 days time. And it was done.

The Tagum contemplative group has been homeless for 16 years. They have existed as a group practicing contemplative prayer in many places….in the Sinagoga, in the Rural Bank of Montevista, in the BIR place. And finally one day Nitz Nazareno comes to Sr. Eppie I would like to donate a lot of 250 sq.m. so that Tagum ROCA will find a home. Sr. Eppie then came to look at the place and met with the other owners. I feel this Mama Mary guiding Sr. Eppie because in August 26 we learned that the RDO will be moved!!! just in time. I believe this is Divine intervention.
In August 30 Bishop George Rimando DD blest the new place, the home of Casa ROCA in Tagum City.

Finally the Regina Rosarii Contemplative Association of Tagum has a home they can call their very own.

The Dominican Sisters of Regina Rosarii together with her Lay partners provide affordable laboratory exams for their poor homeless families they call K friends

The Dominican Sisters of Regina Rosarii together with their Lay partners provided affordable laboratory exams for their “k friend” ministry. These are the poor homeless street families many of whom are elderly and /or jobless. Many are living in the kalye, sleep in karton cardboard, live in kariton. We acknowledge the good work of our lay mission partners the ROCA  Regina Rosarii Contemplative Association. They partially funded the laboratory exams.

Our Regina Rosarii Ministry for K friends continue to give dignity to our K-friends by making them participate in their healing by way of contributing 5 pesos a pack of medicine good for one week. Our Tuesdays with K friends FEED Program where we give Food, Education, Empowerment & Deliver socio medical pastoral services has run for the last 11 years.
