..On January 13, 2017 the Medical Mission Sisters launched HEAL’S year-long program and activities to mark the birth of HEAL in Villasis, Pangasinan in January 2008. The simple celebration was graced by the presence of Sr. Rosemary Ryan, MMS from the MMS Society Leadership Team based in London. Sr. Rosemary came to visit the Sisters. HEAL community of life also welcomed the new staff , Ms. Marinell George. Present on the occasion were the staff and members of MMS HEAL community. Highlight in the signicant occasion was the planting of Kamuning tree by Sr. Rosemary and Chesa tree by Sr. Naty Cristobal to symbolize the beginning of another chapter of HEAL’s continuing journey.
“The unfolding story of HEAL through the years is a journey filled with awe, wonder, surprises as we encounter the “Creator of Creation and Life”. We believe that our journey is a “ journey into the Heart of God”. And on this journey we have been surrounded and supported by many friends, benefactors, religious Sisters and priests, lay staff, and Medical Mission Sisters all over the world. THANK YOU FOR EVERYONE WHO HAS BEEN AND WILL BE WITH US ON THIS JOURNEY. We are indeed full of gratitude!”
