Simbang Gabi 2011
Our theme for this 2011 Advent Season is
A Family Called to Witness a Life in Christ through Mary and Joseph
On behalf of the entire Filipino American Community throughout the Diocese of Arlington (Northern Virginia area), We wish to express our deep gratitude of thanks and appreciation to Ms. Corrine Monogue, Director of the Office of Multicultural Ministries and to His Excellency Most Rev. Paul S. Loverde Bishop of Arlington for their continued support and guidance in celebrating our most beloved tradition- Simbang Gabi "Advena Novena of Masses" which had began since December 2000.
We wish to acknowledge and thank all the Pastors and Parish Staff from all the respective parishes that hosted the Simbang Gabi in the 14 different parishes for their hospitality and assistance in making the Novena of Mass a reality.
To all the people behind the scenes from the Simbang Gabi Coordinator, Simbang Gabi committee members, Choir, and all participants in the mass as well as the many food sponsors, we thank you for your tireless efforts, your dedication and love of Service to God and Community.
To all who attended and participated in the Simbang Gabi Masses, It is because of you that we have come to Serve unselfishly and faithfully. You continue to inspires us and are ever thankful in taking some time from your busy schedule to be with us and feast at the "Salu-salo" reception or partake in breaking bread and receiving our Lord.
To our Youth and Young Adults in community, we hope with your experiencing Simbang Gabi with your family and friends that someday you may instill these important values, customs, and traditions into your own upbringing and perhaps into your own family someday. We pray and hope for the Youth and Young Adults to have more of an active role in our future Simbang Gabi always with the wisdom and guidance of their supportive parents.
May you all have a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year
Coordinator, Filipino Ministry of Northern Virginia
