St. Vincent Ferrer parish at Sagñay holds living rosary for clean election
By Fr. Anthony Sargento
The month of October is especially dedicated to Mary, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary. Most parishes celebrate her feast on October 7, encouraging devotion to Our Lady by the daily recitation of the rosary in their churches and the different communities. The Parish of St Vincent Ferrer in Sibaguan, Sagñay, aside from celebrating on the feast day of Our Lady of the Rosary, organized a Living Rosary last October 29 as the culminating activity for the Rosary Month.
This was held at the Good Shepherd Garden in the parish at 6:00 in the evening. A holy mass was celebrated and presided over by the Parish Priest Rev. Fr. Anthony Sargento. The Living Rosary followed. It was participated by aspiring candidates for Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan positions for Brgy. Sibaguan. They led in lighting the candles, forming a big rosary. Each decade had differently-colored candles to represent the beads. These were spread on the ground of the garden. The candles for the Creed and the first five beads were positioned on the steps of the convent. The intention for a clean, just, and honest Barangay and Sangguniang Elections were expressed during the Mass and Living Rosary. The activity brought all of the parishioners, both candidates and voters together, united in prayer and love for Jesus and the Blessed Mother.
