May 4, 2023, Barangay Mining, Angeles City, Philippines – “Forever I will sing of the goodness of the Lord," the responsorial psalm on the Feast of St. Mark the Evangelist, captures well the song of our hearts last April 25, a special day of honoring Sister Evangelina G. Fernandez, OP, one of the pioneers of the Our Lady of Remedies Mission Chapter, based in the Philippines.
It was fitting to thank God for the gift of 91 years of Sister Evangeline’s blessed life, as well as her Diamond Jubilee as a Dominican religious. It was a grace-filled celebration, attended by Sister Vangie's brother, close relatives and friends, and the Sisters.
The thanksgiving liturgy held before the Mass became a venue to affirm our love and gratitude for her generous sharing of faith and life with our community. The Eucharistic celebration itself was officiated by our ever-supportive Archbishop Emeritus, Apu Ceto, with Rev. Father Ramon B. Torres, a friend of the community.
Fellowship and meal sharing near the convent's meditation garden concluded this special celebration of God's generosity and fidelity!
Originally a separate Congregation, the Dominican Sisters of Our Lady of Remedies was founded in the 1960s with assistance from Adrian Dominican Sisters in the formation of its founding members. The two congregations merged in 2011, with the former Congregation established as a Chapter of the Adrian Dominican Sisters.
