Through the OLAFIL Community we foster and provide a wholesome, healthy and supportive environment for all members; developing and putting into practice their different charisma through service to God and his people; thereby creating a bond of love, trust, honor, and understanding, as well as, nourishment and growth in their spiritual and communal well being.
We lead the congregation in music during the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays of each month during the 6pm Mass. Rehearsals are before our 6pm Mass in the church and during the first Friday evenings of each month at the Lower Hall.
First Friday Mass of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is celebrated in the OLA Lower Hall at 8:30 pm every first Friday of the month. Priestly blessing of birthday celebrants for the month and potluck reception follows. Everyone is welcome.
"Simbang Gabi" or Advent Novena Masses are celebrated from December 15 to December 23 each year and are hosted by different Parishes in Deanery 10. This is nine days of worship, prayer and community gathering. All are invited to these daily Mass celebrations and to experience this rich religious and cultural tradition.
We need singers and instrumentalists for our choir, lectors, and eucharistic ministers to be trained for our 6:00 pm Mass every 1st, 3rd, and 5th Sundays of the month.
Please visit Our Lady of Manaoag permanently based at the OLA Hall of Saints.
