RAY de Talisay: Shoebox Project for Rosary Children
Last October 31, 2020, RAY de Talisay, together with Carmela Ladies, celebrated the 4th Anniversary of Rosary Children. During this pandemic, wherein we are encouraged to “stay at home”, the organization decided to make a project— Shoebox project for the Rosary Children that contain learning materials.
These learning materials are very useful that despite this pandemic, the beneficiaries will still be able to learn and continue their missions as growing children of God.
Shoeboxes were distributed to houses of the active members of the Rosary Children.
On behalf of the RAY de Talisay and Carmela Ladies, we would like to extend our deepest gratitude to Recoletos de Talisay community, to the sponsors for their continuous support in making this event possible and successful, especially during these times. To the RAY de Talisay family, alone we can do so little, together we can do so much. Above all, we thank the Almighty Father for being our source of strength that guided us all throughout the activity. With Oneness of Mind and Heart, On the way to God; RAY de Talisay, One in Mission.
