Review for Mary Queen of All Nations Missionary Alliance, Dover, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Praise the Lord!

I have been acquainted with the Mary Queen of All Nations Missionary Alliance much more with sister Mila Ricafranca, a very close sister of mine. This organization became part of my life as a parish priest. I started to know the Alliance and sis. Mila when I was in my Parish, St. Vincent Ferrer Parish, San Vicente, Palawan. The lives of my parishioners in San Vicente were alleviated because their financial assistance was used in our parish program. I was also assigned as a Parish priest of St. Therese, Aborlan, Palawan, San Jose Puerto Princesa City, San Miguel Parish, Puerto Princesa City and all my parish assignments were very fruitful and successful. Me and my parishioners were able to establish the Ministrong Layko ng Komunyon, Piggery, Parish Catechists, Religious store and all of these were established because of this organization, Mary Queen of All Nations Missionary Alliance, was with me.
Now in my present parish assignment the Mary Queen of All Nations is helping me establishing the Basic Ecclesial Community (BEC) here in Quezon, Palawan. This program includes scholarship, Livelihood and the Parish Library. Now they are sending books and library materials, Religious articles, rosaries, vitamins and used clothes for our poorest of the poor, mass intentions and others. We are and what we are now is because of Mary Queen of All Nations Missionary Alliance and because of our sister Mila Ricafranca who has a big heart for the priest assigned in Missionary Amen.

Review for Mary Queen of All Nations Missionary Alliance, Dover, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Christ-filled greetings!

I know Sister Merla Ricafranca of Mary of All Nations Missionary Alliance of Reservoir Avenue, Dover New Jersey, U.S.A. The Alliance and Sister Merla Ricafranca are very caring, loving especially to the needs of our least brothers and sisters here in Palawan. We are one of the many beneficiaries of the Alliance since the 80's. They helped us and my people when I was the Parish Priest of St. Vincent Ferrer Parish, St. Therese of the Child Jesus Parish, St. Joseph Parish, St. Michael Archangel Parish and till now at the Immaculate Conception Parish here in Quezon, Palawan, Philippines. They help the parish by sending used clothes, slightly used materials, books, rosaries, food and others. They help our people especially the poorest of the poor by means of scholarship to some elementary pupils and high school students. They helped in our livelihood program for the poor, the marginalized and the forgotten of the society. For the past four years, they helped our Immaculate Conception Parochial School by sending slightly used books in our library and other materials. They support the needs of our Parish Office until now. Here in our present parish, they help us by building our new Parish Rectory, send slightly used clothes to our natives of the town, medicines and vitamins, intention masses and many others. For the past three years, they helped our two seminarians undergoing their formation in the two seminaries. One is at the Philosophy department of Seminario de San Jose, Puerto Princesa, Palawan, Philippines and the other one at the Theology Department of St. Joseph Regional Seminary, Jaro, Iloilo City, Philippines. They are giving an amount of $1,000 each seminarian. They helped and continue helping our Basic Ecclesial Community Program of our Parish for the least fortunate parishioners who are sufferings, sick and abandoned, many disturbed youths, the deaf without Christian instructions who are members of our BEC Program. They help us transform our BEC Program with the arm -- a better quality of life and to alleviate life conditions of our poor people.

It is indeed very inspiring to realize that sister Merla and the Alliance are there as our benefactors endowed with a mature faith and generosity who could see the need and even the urgency of sharing their material treasures for the worthy cause. Because of Sis. Merla and the Alliance, we have realized that the vision of people total human and spiritual development is not after all hard to achieve, if there are others like sister Merla and the Alliance who are willing to hold hands with us.
