Love Reaches Beyond the Gates
The Our Lady of the Visitation Youth Organization (OLVYO) gathered to visit the men and women incarcerated at the Borongan jail on Friday, February 14. OLVYO brought the
Smile of Jesus to their brother and sisters who are awaiting trail or serving sentences for their crimes. The OLVYO Valentine's Day gathering was focused on bringing expressions of brotherly love to the prisoners. The previous evening they created a prayerful Valentine card for each prisoner as an effort to reach beyond the gates in comfort and accompaniment. Led by Sr. Jenelynne, SSV, the Youth Organization walked to the jail bringing gifts for giving and dinner. They sang songs for the men and women and delivered t-shirts and a hot dinner prepared by the Sisters. Sr. Rubi's message to the prisoners was to have hope in positive future and know they are loved even as they face the difficulties of their situations.
