MANILA, Philippines—“We remember. We are grateful. All is Gift.”

That was the theme of the centennial celebration of the Missionary Sisters Servants of the Holy Spirit, as reiterated by its provincial leader, Sr. Eden Panganiban, SSpS, on Jan. 15 at the School of the Holy Spirit in Quezon City.


The culmination of the celebration was a concelebrated Thanksgiving Mass, with Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Tagle, DD, as the main celebrant and Fr. Antonio Pernia, SVD, the superior general of the Society of the Divine Word, as the homilist. They were assisted by more than 100 priests.

As part of the event, four persons, two groups and an institution were recognized for their significant contributions to the SSpS mission: Teresita E. Nitorreda; Sabino Padilla Jr.; Julia Billaco; Benjamin Abadiano; The Holy Ghost School of Tayum, Abra; The College of the Holy Spirit Alumnae Foundation Inc.; The Holy Spirit Associates in the Philippines.


On Jan. 10, a week before the grand celebration, the Heritage Room was opened at the College of the Holy Spirit Manila.

It tells the story of a century of “SSpS Misyon” through pictures, words and artifacts and gives the visitor a glimpse of the sisters’ apostolic history and their life of prayer and community.
