200 churchgoers availed of the Supplementary Feeding Program (SFP) of the Holy Cross Parish in Basak, Pardo, Cebu City after the 6:00am Mass of the 6th day novena of the Feast of the Triumph of the Cross last September 10, 2022. The “pospas” meal was part of their activities to promote charity and compassion toward others. This eventually led to the birth of its own Parish Caritas.
On the Feast Day of the Triumph of the Cross last September 14, 2022, 35 parishioners with various ailments received the Holy Eucharist. Each beneficiary was given a 500 Years of Christianity Mission Cross and a Basket of Goodies and Fruits. All these efforts were made possible by the Parish Caritas Youth, Extraordinary Ministers of the Holy Communion (EMHC), Ministry of Altar Servers (MOAS), and Greeters and Sanitation Ministry Youth.
Holy Cross Parish Caritas thanked Five Loaves and Two Fish community and all donors and benefactors for their support.
Cebu Caritas Inc. is the mandated social action arm of the Archdiocese of Cebu. It serves the Anawim through its Humanitarian, Developmental, and Justice and Peace programs.
