Urbiztondo, PANGASINAN–The crisis brought by COVID-19 has been so alarming. However, there is always a brighter side of it. In times of crisis like this, the spirit of BAYANIHAN always lives.
As a way of living the Augustinian saying “One heart, one soul on the way towards God,” Our Lady of the Visitation Parish-Recoletos conducted the first wave of giving donation to the needy parishioners through the leadership of the Parish Priest, Fray Joseph Cyprian Panaligan, OAR; Local Prior, Fray Samson Silloriquez, OAR; and PPC Coordinator, Sis Perlita Narag.
This time, as a response to the current situation, the RAY de Pangasinan, led by the President, Angelika Perez and the Spiritual Director, Fray Cristito Rey Tepace, OAR, conducted a “tRAYbute” to the frontliners (barangay health workers and civic volunteer organization) by giving them free meals last May 9, 2020.
The fund used for this project was taken from the money raised from the Palaspas Online-Selling and other fund-raising activities of RAY de Pangasinan.
“Maraming maraming salamat po mga frontliners dito sa barangay namin (Pasibi East). Nawa’y magustuhan nyo ang simpleng handog namin upang kahit papaano ay maibalik namin ang lahat ng sakripisyo nyo sa amin. (To all our frontliners from Brgy. Pasibi East, thank you. May our simple gifts reflect our gratitude for all the sacrifices you have done for us,” said Angelika Perez, RAY de Pangasinan President.
