A SCHOOL FOUNDRESS

In the 1960’s, the sugar industry boomed.  Land owners went on a world tour. After Papu and Momsy attended a recollection together, they decided not to join the tour as they wanted to use the money to do something worthy and it was Momsy’s dream to lift up the dignity of human beings as they are the children of God. So, they decided to first build the chapel in the farm and named it in honor of Mary, Our Lady of the Nativity Chapel. Next, they built homes for the farm workers around the chapel.  Last, they built a school for farm children. They named the school St. Francis of Assisi School.  “This is my dream come true for the poor,” said Momsy. 

Today St. Francis is a thriving institution in Silay and is known to many supporters and donors all over the world who help in continuing the mission she started more than 50 years ago.  It has become the most meaningful and enduring testament to her life. When Papu passed away, he bequeathed most of his money to the school as a testament to how much he believed in the work that they had started there.
