The Provincial Rogate Vocation Center (PRVC) of the St. Matthew Province facilitated an Online Triduum of Preparation and Celebration of the Solemnity of St. Hannibal Mary Di Francia from May 29-June 1, bearing the theme: "Gifted to Give, Like St. Hannibal."
The Triduum of Preparation featured infographics, prayers, and live conversations in how St. Hannibal taught and lived the theological virtues of faith, hope, and charity. Among those invited to share their reflections on St. Hannibal were Fr. Rogie Quinga, RCJ, who shared about "Hope" according to St. Hannibal, and Fr. Dexter Prudenciano, RCJ, who shared "Charity" in St. Hannibal. Each day of Triduum also featured some of the apostolic works entrusted to the Rogationists.
Some Communities also facilitated the livestreaming of the Triduum of Masses, which helped animate the preparation for the Solemnity. The first day, May 29, was hosted by the Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary Parish in Multinational Village, Parañaque City, and its Mass was presided over by Fr. Dante Quidayan, RCJ. On the second day, May 30, the Holy Mass was presided over by Fr. Rodolfo Patiag, Jr., RCJ, held at the St. Anthony's Boys Village in Silang, Cavite. On the third day, May 31, Fr. Edgar Dacaldacal, RCJ presided over the Holy Mass that was hosted at the St. Hannibal Formation Center in Cebu.
On the day of the celebration itself, that is, June 1st, a message from the Provincial Superior, Fr. Orville Cajigal, RCJ, was posted and delivered. A Holy Mass was then presided over by Fr. Antonio Nocellado, RCJ, hosted at the Fr. Di Francia Center of Studies in San Dionisio, Parañaque City.
