Are distractions in our prayers displeasing to God?
No, distractions in our prayers are not displeasing to God, unless they are willful.

As community of believers, we must have a great desire to spread our faith; to edify others by being a...

The Queenship of Mary

“Who is she that cometh up from the desert, flowing with delights, leaning upon her Beloved?”

Book marks, leave Marks!

In every lesson and activity, we are nurtured by our Mentors. We, the Paeskwela ni San Andres students, made book marks as our activity last August 2. These book marks provide inspiration which is a constant reminder for us everytime we see them.
We put some words and phrases that can inspire other Paekswela students. This project showed how students care for others. These were just very simple items yet touches hearts of other people. We exchanged book marks and were surprised with the messages written by our co-Paeskwela. All I can say is “This stuff is so cool!”
