Our Filipino Communities here in Rome, Italy, honor St. Arnold Janssen and St. Joseph Freinademetz on the occasions of their 100th death Anniversary and 5th year after they were proclaimed as Saints by the late, his holiness Pope John Paul II on 5 October 2003. Sunday, 5 October 2008, at 10:30 in the morning, people most of them Filipino OFWs congregated at the Main Chapel at the Collegio Verbi Divini, the SVD Generalate for the celebration of the Holy Eucharist.

Among the concelebrants were priests from other congregations while others were one time and are SVD missionaries to the Philippines. (Other details on Page Section)
