Christmas is a wonderful time for all of us to unwind and reflect on a year that is about to expire. With the celebration also comes the appreciation that the significance of Christmas is far beyond the joyous occasion and the gift giving: it symbolizes our renewed faith in the goodness of humanity and our gratefulness upon this great country that we have chosen to be our second home and home of our children.
The FECGP along with its Executive Board, Member Associations and Affiliates wish to greet one and all a very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year.
This Christmas season, I had the opportunity to be with our local Fil-Am leaders in the many church related activities. One that touched my heart is the gift-giving we had at Olde St. Agustins’s and Our Lady of Hope. Thanks to all donors and volunteers! The thought that we have leaders who think beyond themselves and extend a hand to help others who are needy and indigent gave a whole new meaning to a commercially-driven Christmas that we have been so accustomed to.
Maraming Salamat sa inyong lahat and my the blessings of God be upon our Fil-Am communities across our areas, to our beloved country: the great United States.
President Nida Imperial
