Little Flower Retreat House

 

 

Welcome Brothers & Sisters!

 

The Little Flower Retreat House which is owned and efficiently managed by the Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception of the Holy Mother of God (SFIC), is peacefully nestled on top of a hill along Villamor Street. Its strategic location is accessible to tourists and visitors because St. Joseph’s Parish Church in Pacdal, the Mansion, the Wright Park, Innsbruck Hotel and Albergo Hotel are just a stone’s throw away.

Originally designed for the formation of novices  under  the guidance of the Dutch Sisters in  the  early  years  of   the twentieth century, this structure has the quiet and  solemn atmosphere excellent for Retreats, Recollections, Seminars, Conferences and Meetings. Furthermore, the cool fresh air and clean environment provide the welcoming   ambiance for the attainment of  goals and objectives for any activity.

The most important part of the Retreat House is this CHAPEL where masses, prayers, and other liturgical celebrations are done. It is equipped with the necessities for the Mass like the organ, guitars, music books, microphones, speakers, etc. which are all made accessible upon request to the management. It has also two confessional boxes which are conveniently located at the back of the chapel. Adjacent to the altar is the sacristy where the Priests’ vestments and sacred materials for mass are kept.

This is the Conference Room which is fully equipped for the lecture presentations. It is spacious enough for the comfort of the participants.

Fine dining can always be enjoyed in this dining room. Regular meals and snacks are served here. Orders are also accepted as long as these are forwarded on time to the Chef or any of the kitchen staff.


The Little Flower Retreat House also accepts requests for wedding receptions and other forms of celebrations.


Each room located in the second floor is equipped with a single bed and a bathroom with hot and cold shower for the convenience of its occupant.


Drawer beds are also provided in the single rooms for practical reasons. The rooms are still spacious even if two beds are prepared.

The bedrooms in the third floor are big enough to accommodate three or four beds which is good for families or the youth who like to stay close to each other. The fourth floor has cubicles which also serve as single bedrooms. The galleries in the fourth floor are the best places in the house to view scenic spots i.e., the  Country Club.  Common bathrooms on the third and fourth floors are also provided with hot and cold water.

 

 

This is a cozy nook by the fireplace which is suitable for small group discussions. It is a very quiet area in the house that provides privacy.


A Consultation Room is very necessary for individuals who want to speak with the Retreat Master or Resource Person as needed. This private room serves that purpose. Comfortable chairs are provided to set a relaxed atmosphere.


Space for the Workshop


This is one of the waiting areas in front of the Retreat House at its main entrance where one can view the left wing of the President’s Mansion.


Sitting down on this spot leads one to meditation and prayer of thanksgiving for God’s art in his creation. Early mornings here are usually spent by participants in doing spiritual exercises and praising God.


This wall displays the painting of St. Francis and St. Clare praising God in creation.


From a distance, one can see the fog and feel the cool breeze. The fresh scent of the pine trees, the grass and the flowers are waiting for you. Welcome to the Little Flower Retreat House! Enjoy your stay!

Magsaysay memorial college

San Narciso, Zambales

JOURNEYING ON WITH ITS GOLDEN HARVEST


This was the original school building where the Sisters spent their lives with dedication and love for God’s people. Five decades and three years ago, the Congregation of the Franciscan Sisters (the then CFIC) arrived in San Narciso, Zambales upon the request of the Society of the Columban Fathers, Father O’Brien and Fr. Vincent Lyons. The Pioneers were Sr. Teresita Lardizabal +, Sr. Scholastica Rambayon+, Sr. Augustine Bautista+, Sr. Dorothy Ortega, Sr. Redempta Navalta, and Sr. Regina Tabaniag.

 

As they are now reaping their golden harvest, Fr. Roque Villanueva, the incumbent Parish Priest of San Narciso invited the Sisters to come over to San Narciso on January 20, 2015 on the solemn feast of San Sebastian for this tribute to the SFICs. Our General Superior, Sr. Maria Lourdes Santos, who has also been assigned in San Narciso, Zambales travelled all the way with Sr. Luz Espiritu, Sr. Mary Francis Borje, Sr. Junetta Jimenez, Sr. Isabel Benitez, Sr. Teresita Babaran, Sr. Feliza Sylvino, Sr. Ancilla Cabula, Sr. Marie Teresa Espiritu, Sr. Lucia Gumiran, Sr. Theresia Reyes, Sr. Celestine Vigilia and Sr. Redempta Navalta in joyful response to the said invitation. It’s always good to bring to memory nostalgic moments of experiences both the pleasant and the painful ones because all these realities add up to the spice of living life to the full. It was a joy for the parishioners to see the Sisters. Some were whispering, “Babalik na ba sila? What a consoling thought! So, the day began with the solemn

THANKSGIVING MASS

Here’s the statue of SAN SEBASTIAN whose feast is celebrated on January 20, 2015, majestically enthroned on a conspicuous place in front of the altar. All the parishioners and government officials were there in the Church in a festive mood as the mass went on.

Sr. Mary Francis Borje who works for our Indigenous brothers and sisters in Nibangon, Subic took charge of the First Reading.

Sr. Junetta Jimenez, the incumbent Local Leader of St. Francis Learning Center had her turn for the second Reading.

Sisters Marie Teresa Espiritu and Teresita Babaran were the offerers .

Sr. Teresita Babaran, Provincial Board Member who heads the Commission on Prophetic Minstry of the Congregation received the Trophy from Fr. Roque Villanueva. May this simple token of gratitude from the parish of San Sebastian, San Narciso be likened to a pebble thrown into deep waters that will produce ripples as we pray for more vocations and the goal of our Congregation to widen its horizons and boundaries.

 

On behalf of the parishioners, Ms. Vilma Espiritu Minguez, the sister of Sr. Luz Espiritu, sfic gave her message of gratitude recalling those times when she was lavished with care and love from the Sisters when she was a young student at MMC (Magsaysay Memorial College). It was a sincere affirmation and testimony of the commitment of the Sisters in the discharge of their duties. Lastly, with a note of appreciation for the SFIC Congregation, on behalf also of her family, she expressed her gratitude for the support accorded to them when they were much in need of the presence of their sister, Sr. Luz Espiritu, sfic at a time when their mother was ill.

It was no less than our very own  General Superior, Sr. Maria Lourdes Santos, once  assigned also in San Narciso who gave a very touching message for the Parishioners. The Congregation listened intently to every word she uttered. It was really a nostalgic moment as  she gladly thanked the parishioners for their kind and thoughtful remembrance of the Sisters and mentioned with utmost respect that some of the Sisters who have been affirmed have already gone ahead of us. Once again, even if sisters may be physically gone, memories are never forgotten.

After the mass, everyone went outside to witness the blessing of the Statue of St. Francis which has been erected as a TRIBUTE in remembrance of the SFIC presence in the school and parish cognizant of the role of the SFIC (then CFIC) in the Christian formation of the people. Sr. Maria Lourdes Santos, General Superior, graced the occasion cutting the ribbon prior to the blessing as Sr. Lucia Gumiran, Sr. Isabel Benitez, Sr. Luz Espiritu, Sr. Theresia Reyes and Sr. Teresita Babaran  held their lighted candles as the Parishioners reflectively savored the significance of the ceremonies.
