Adveniat house in Quezon City had the pleasure and the honour to host the meeting of the Finance Council of the Congregation, for a small week, last June. They were helped by a few gallons of coffee and some savory malangkit (sweet sticky rice cakes) to work out the figures and fight the jetlag effect. The Filipino AA communities had the joy also to celebrate with them the ceremony of first vows of five of our brothers. We thank each of them for their work and fraternity. We pray that the Holy Spirit inspires and fortifies them every day in their important duty, back in their respective communities.
