Sr.Crescencia L. Lucero, SFIC
Executive Director

We have just celebrated the Feast of the Epiphany. This draws to a close the Christmas season and welcomes the life and struggle of our Lord Jesus Christ.

We welcome the New Year with our nation and people still in crisis yet we reaffirm our solidarity with our people even as TFDP faces a challenge of its own - to be of service to the poor in a time of diminished resources both human and financial.

 
In Memory of Sr. Mariani Dimaranan, Human Rights Defender*

"Human rights is at the core of Gospel teachings. ... Sufferings unite victims. Inside the Marcos prisons, the victims and their families learned to care for each other and share everything with others. It is the link to the victims that gives the activist real participant’s strength." - Sr. Mariani Dimaranan.

Sr. Mariani Dimaranan, against the wishes of her father entered the convent two years after graduating from college. She ran away from home to enter the convent and her father, unable to convince her to return home, filed a case against her in court. But Sr. Mariani stood her ground and with all determination and feistiness became a professed nun of the Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Concepcion (SFIC).

When asked why she became a nun, her ready answer was, “because I want to help the poor.” And for Sr. Mariani, serving the poor means not only doing charitable works but being with them in their struggle for a better life.

Dear Sisters,

Today, we are committing Sister Mariani, born to Mariano and Maria Dimaranan on February 1st, 1924, and baptized Marcela, to the womb of Mother Earth. We celebrate her passing away in this Mass of the Resurrection, as the victory over death (in its many forms) earned for us by our Lord Jesus Christ. It is a most fitting way to bring to a close the earthly presence of one whose hope was always fixed on the promise of life to those who believe. Sister Mariani was such a person.
