Gumaca, Quezon

New Canonically set-up Community in the Diocese of Gumaca (Quezon)


It was in the year 2012 that the then Bishop of Gumaca, Most Rev.  Buenaventura Famadico (presently the Bishop of the Diocese of San Pablo), invited the Canossian Sisters for their apostolic assistance in the ministries of Youth and Family & Life. Sometime later, two Sisters began their apostolic immersion in the Diocese during the weekends. After a year, encouraged by their positive experiences and the needs of the Diocese, an apostolic group of three Sisters was formed, attending to the two aforementioned ministries plus the services rendered in the Diocesan Formation Center.


It was on May 8, 2015, the ecclesial feast of the Institute, that a regular community was canonically set-up and the first community leader, Sr. Nancy Tagle, was installed.  The Mass was celebrated by the Diocesan administrator, Rev. Msgr. Jose Lagdameo and con-celebrated by priests of the Diocese. Canossian Sisters from the different communities led by Sr. Glecy Manuyag, Provincial leader, came to rejoice and celebrate this grace-filled and significant event.
