3. Main Activities of 2015

As part of the three-year preparation for the Golden Jubilee Celebration of Motehr of Life center in December 2017, the image of Mary, Mother of Life travelled May 2014-May 2015 all over Mindanao, and May 2015-May 2016, was brought to the Visayas specifically to dioceses, parishes and schools where MOLians hail from or are now based. This pilgrim visit will give them the opportunity to once again re-connect and re-live the MOL tradition—a life of prayer and action right where they serve, live and love.

The image is now in Luzon transferred last May 2016 from the Visayas specifically from Samar (Visayas) to Sorsogon (Luzon), the first region to welcome the pilgrim image in Luzon.

  1. Make MOL website more informative and contacts more specific.

  2. I’m Kae from Las Pinas, 25yrs of age, and I want to enter the religious life because of “the call” . I’m a serious religious but not a member with any organization, though I do have deep faith and study independently by reading a lot of religious books and practicing in my own lifestyle like attending mass daily with communion, confession and adoration before the Blessed Sacrament, novenas, fasting and contemplation.. It’s been 9months since i decided but still in discernment stage continuously focused on my spiritual life and personal development but I know i can’t find direction by being on my own. so lately, i have tried attending search-in meetings with other religious congregations. I suppose I need an adviser or at least a support group that can assist me with some concerns regarding vocation. A friend of mine has mentioned Mother of Life to me. I want to know more about it and I hope you can email me a person you may recommend as a spiritual adviser/director. also, I am interested in knowing more about becoming a professional catechist. Hoping someone can get back to me, my direct contact: 0906-5573618. Awaiting a reply.Thank you and God bless.
