Our Filipino Ministry is called SANLO (San Lorenzo). This ministry group is part of the Filipino communities in the Fox Valley area. Our mission is to help spread the gospel of Jesus Christ to Filipino Catholics through spiritual, social and cultural means. At St. EAS we celebrate Siete Palabras (Seven words of Christ) every Good Friday, Novena and Feast of San Lorenzo Ruiz de Manila (the first Filipino Saint) every September and one of the nine days of Simbang Gabi (Evening Mass) every December.
We organize fundraising efforts to support victims of typhones, flood, and earthquakes in the Philippines. We also give financial assistance to Filipino seminarians.
Everyone is welcome at our liturgical celebrations and other parishes in the Fox Valley area. Mabuhay!
