        Another year of continuous mission to our less fortunate brothers and sisters through Pondo ng Pinoy has come.

The 13th Founding Anniversary of Pondo ng Pinoy themed “Pondo ng Pinoy –Agent in Communion of Communities was celebrated at St. Anne Parish Gymnasium, Sta. Ana, Taguig last July 22, 2017. STVPS sent three representatives namely, Ms. Gina Bagtas, CL Coordinator, Vanessa Rogel and Kaye Armachuelo, MiniTech Officers. The program started at 8 o’clock in the morning with an opening prayer followed by the singing of the National Anthem. Students from La Sagesse presented an intermission number afterwards. It is followed by the welcome remarks of the PnP Priest Coordinator, Fr. Errol Fidel H. Mananquil. The audience were shown a video presentation of the inspirational messages of His Eminence Gaudencio B. Cardinal Rosales, the founder of Pondo ng Pinoy, and His Excellency Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle, Archbishop of Manila. The Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Youth presented a community singing of Kahit Isang Kusing preceded by an intermission number from Immaculate Conception Parish. The gathering of crumbs has made a big impact to others’ lives. Five people were given the chance to share how the Pondo ng Pinoy has become a part of their lives. Those people were: Mr. Joseph Andrew Berena, a student from Sta. Rosa de Lima; Mr. Henry Galvez, a parishioner from La Sagesse Rehabilitation and Development Center; Bro. Jimmy Doong, coordinator of Pondo ng Pinoy from St. John the Baptist Parish; Ms. Mary Anne Molar, a scholar from PCC; and Sis Elizabeth Mirasol and Marilyn Balading who shared and presented the impact of Pondo ng Pinoy in their livelihood.

The update reports of Pondo ng Pinoy from 2015-2017 was presented by Mr. Anthony Badilla, executive director of Pondo ng Pinoy. The total amount of the crumbs gathered was Php200M plus and there are almost 9,000 beneficiaries.

Due to the generosity of the students of STVPS, the school was awarded the Certificate of Appreciation as the Top 5 among the Outstanding Achievement in the Gathering of Crumbs in the year 2016-2017. Other schools and parishes were also awarded the certificate.

The event was followed by a Eucharistic Celebration with Most Rev. Bishop Mylo Hubert C. Vergara DD as the main presider together with the Diocese of Pasig clergy as the concelebrants.
