Pondo ng Pinoy marks 14th year anniversary


Pondo ng Pinoy, a poverty alleviation program initiated by Gaudencio B. Cardinal Rosales, Archbishop-Emeritus of Manila will celebrate its 14th year anniversary on August 12, 2018.

The celebration will begin with a motorcade going to Manila Cathedral. The thirteen vicariates in the Archdiocese of Manila are expected to participate in the motorcade.

At 11 a.m., a Thanksgiving Mass will be held at the Manila Cathedral to be presided by His Eminence Luis Antonio.G. Cardinal Tagle, Archbishop of Manila.

On its fourteenth year, Pondo ng Pinoy continues to aspire to reach more people and create greater awareness of its existence especially in the parish communities.

In his letter addressed to parish priests in the Archdiocese of Manila, Manila Auxiliary Bishop Broderick Pabillo of the Team Ministry of Pondo ng Pinoy asked the priests and its parishioners for full support and cooperation in the said activity. 

"Your participation with your fellow parish priests/priests in the vicariates and communities in the parish and urban areas, religious congregations and schools (administrators, faculties, staff amd students) in evangelization and social development programs of Pondo ng Pinoy will be highly appreciated," Pabillo said.

The prelate also asked the parish priests to incorporate Pondo ng Pinoy in their homilies in August.

Pondo ng Pinoy was launched in 2004 by then Archbishop of Manila, Gaudencio B. Cardinal Rosales during the Manila Archdiocesan General Pastoral Assembly (MAGPAS).

With its motto, "Anumang maliit basta't malimit ay patungong langit," Pondo ng Pinoy encourages the faithful to do small acts of kindness and solidarity in the simplest way by saving 25 centavos a day. (Jheng Manalang Prado/RCAM-AOC)
