..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!”
