On March 6, 2017, Fr. John Joffer Lucas, the Superior of the Fr. Hannibal Formation Center, delivered a homily, during the Holy Mass presided over by Fr. Herman Abcede, the Provincial Superior, emphasizing the scriptural lesson of constantly being mindful of responding to the needs of the littles ones. This teaching of Jesus from the day's liturgy, found fulfillment in the simple event of the blessing of the San Antonio de Padua Dental Clinic, whose primary mission is to provide for dental concerns of the indigent children from the nearby villages of Merville Park. Through the help of Mrs. Silveria Salazar, who knew Dr. Ed de la Vega of the Dentistry for every Village Foundation, this project of setting up a state-of-the-art facility was completed, blessed and now ready to serve. Thanks to the countless generous sponsors and dentists!
