A Visit of the Deacon Founder to a FAST Growing Family

Ms. Lisa Arnaldo

FAST Coordinator

“A family that prays together stays together.” This is indeed an assurance to every family who prays the Holy Rosary together. The focus is not an act of being together but an act of communion to God by nourishing our relationship to Him.

The Family

Several years ago, a “family” has laid down a foundation in the Philippines. It was being commissioned by the “father” from the Portland, Oregon, USA. It started with the charity works for the poor, the sick and the abandoned elderly in the heart of the slum areas and shanties. Many had come to help the family in the noble tasks to share love and bring people to God. The family has grown and continued to reach out to those in dire need of love. The family was called the “Family Association of St. Therese of the Child Jesus.”
