On January 15, 2011, the Missionary Sisters Servants of the Holy Spirit (SSpS) one of the three Religious Missionary Congregations founded by St. Arnold Janssen remembered with gratitude the birth of the Congregation almost one hundred years ago in Tayum, Abra, Philippines. The highlight of the day’s celebrations was the offering of the Holy Eucharist, presided over by his lordship Leopoldo Jaucian, SVD,DD, Bishop of the Diocese of Bangued. Concelebrants in the Mass were  Msgr. Artemio Rillera, SVD,DD (former Bishop of Bangued)  the Clergy in the Diocese and other SVD guest priests. Other Religious men and women also were present to join the Holy Spirit Sisters who came from many parts of the country in this memorable occasion. The laity were joined by some of the Province’s high ranking officials. After the Holy Mass, there was a Parade around town followed by a   Cultural program show casing the early beginnings and the apostolic involvement of the Holy Spirit Sisters in the progress of the Church in Abra since then. Equally significant in today’s event, it is also the 99th Foundation Day of the Holy Ghost School-Tayum. The school was turned over to the Diocese’s management  only a couple of years ago.
