St. Scholastica's Priory, Manila, Philippines


Marihatag Community
1991

The Priory Chapter of 1990   mandated the setting up of an insertion community in   Mindanao.  The choice was Marihatag in Surigao del Sur.  In 1991 a community of Sisters started to live with the people in the village in a rented house until they could build a convent similar to the houses of the local people. The Sisters are actively involved in promoting sustainable agriculture, livelihood projects, anti-mining movements, training of parishioners in holding lively liturgies, teaching catechism in the local public high school, etc.
