Dear Fellow Marian Devotees,
Greetings of great joy as we celebrate FRC @ 25 here at Siena College of Taytay! This is a profound thanksgiving to our loving God for the Great Gift of His Mother and our Mother, too, from our school community for the past 25 years–and still going strong! We also thank God for the Gift of the Blessed Mother who leads us ever closer to her Son, Jesus.
As a Dominican Institution, we have a very special devotion to our Blessed Mother. The Rosary is the most beautiful and richest in graces of all prayers. It is the prayer that touches most the Heart of the Mother of God. The Family Rosary Crusade at SCT plays a very vital role in our devotion to Our Blessed Mother. It encourages us all to pray the Holy Rosary together as a community in school and, hopefully, with our families at home. Family prayer with the rosary epitomizes and gives the concrete expression of our love and devotion to Mary. We must pray daily our Rosary for the strengthening and the binding of families together. “The family that prays together, stays together.”
Siena College of Taytay celebrates a milestone as it holds the 25th year of this annual celebration with the theme ”Choose to be Brave: Believe, Commit, Serve like Mary.” This theme serves as a guide in all our service-oriented activities in line with the celebration of FRC @ 25 this school year 2014 -2015.
Finally, we pray that God, through the sustained intercession of Mama Mary, may graciously grant that we attain in the heavenly Kingdom the glory promised to us, His children.
Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us now and all the days of our life. Amen.
