Sr. Rubi Thanks You!

Missionary Cooperation Plan Second Collection… Welcome to Sr. Rubi Arellano, SSV


The occasion of the visit of a missionary sister to our parish this month is a beautiful example of the richness of God’s grace. Sr. Rubi is a missionary religious sister from the congregation Sisters Servants of the Visitation and is the Regional Superior to the SSV Mission - Aid Bato, in Borongan City, Eastern Samar, Philippines. Sister rejoices in persevering during her twenty-sixth year of consecrated life to serve the poorest and most vulnerable children, youth, and families of the Eastern Samar region. Sister Rubi will be speaking at all the Masses on the weekend of September 3rd and 4th.

Sr. Rubi arrives on August 21st from Buffalo, New York where she participated in the USCCB Mission Cooperative Plan (MCP) giving a mission appeal for the SSV’s Ain Karim Children’s Home to begin her visit to the Archdiocese of Chicago at St. Stephan Deacon and Martyr Parish in Tinley Park. Sr. Rubi is looking forward to greeting our SPC parish community and will be with us the week of August 29th through September 4th. Please take a moment to welcome Sr. Rubi if you see her at morning Mass or during the week.

You can follow Sister Rubi’s MCP journey at or on the Guardians of the Visitation Facebook page.

Please pray for Sister Rubi’s safe journey to the United States and for a fruitful mission spreading the charism of the SSV Sisters to our brothers and sisters in Buffalo and Chicago!!
