The Santo Domingo Parish- National Shrine of Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary, La Naval de Manila, had an Advent recollection on December 2, 2017, which was led by Kalookan bishop, Most Reverend Pablo Virgilio David, D.D.
The recollection focused on the theme “Paghihintay, Paghahanda, Pagdating”.
Bishop Ambo emphasized that Advent is a good time to amend our ways, to be humble and charitable, to pray and fast more, and to focus on Jesus as we wait for his second coming.
Several parishes in the diocese have also organized advent recollections for their parishioners. At the Our Lady of Fatima in Cordillera Street, Father Luciano Felloni was the Advent recollection speaker.
Advent is the beginning of the Church’s liturgical year, and is the season encompassing the four Sundays leading up to the celebration of Christmas.
