March 28, 2015 marks another momentous event of the Verbum Dei Missionary Fraternity and Family around the world as we celebrate the deaconate of Rev. Vincent Guinoo, FMVD in the Lourdes Parish, Labangon, Cebu City, Philippines at 3:00 in the afternoon. The ordination is being officiated by His Excellency Archbishop Jose Palma, DD as he is being concelebrated by eight other priests and five deacons together with our very own Verbum Dei Missionary priests and deacons namely Rev. Fr. James McTavish, FMVD, Rev. Fr. Gerson Ortiz, FMVD, Rev. Fr. Michael Cheong, FMVD, Rev. Fr. Victoriano Caritos, FMVD, Rev. Lucio Arellano, FMVD, and Rev. Iwao Ikegami, FMVD. Together with him present in his deaconate were his family and relatives, his brothers and sisters in the fraternity both from the male and the female branches, his family in the community, and his benefactors and friends.
The newly-formed reality named the TGIF (Thanks God It’s Friday group) started its first session last Friday, 12 September 2014 at the Verbum Dei Apostolate Center (in the Old Sacred Heart School Building, General Maxilom Avenue, Cebu City) around 8:30 in the evening (+8:00 GMT). This group is intended for the young professionals ages 20-35 years old who are new in the community or those who cannot frequently join in the other apostolates.

Brothers and sisters of the Verbum Dei Missionary Fraterniry and Family, and friends:
We would like to share with all of you this video of our 50-years anniversary celebration in the Sanctuary of Santa Lucía. It was a moment of thanksgiving and communion with all of you who, though spread out all over the world, are united in the same charism and in the same Love that makes us a great Family of God. With this gift, let us continue laying one small brick after another to the historical patrimony of Verbum Dei.
A big hug from Majorca to all.

God is Love - Searching for the True Valentino
Good day everyone.This was the first Recollection for the Mary's Friends group which was composed of single moms, widows and separated. I was so grateful to see new mothers who joined us in this recollection; a time to listen to the Word of God and share the grace of being a mother.
