FCSJNS Santacruzan 2018

Hi there! 

I have been selected by the Filipino-American Community at Saint John Neumann Shrine as the Chairman of this year's Santacruzan Flores De Mayo. 

Santacruzan is a revered Filipino tradition celebrating the finding of the Holy Cross by the Empress Helena and Emperor Constantine.

Flores de Mayo is a floral May-time Festival celebrating the Filipinos’ great love for the Blessed Mother.

Details of the event:
Holy Mass: St Peter’s Church/St John Neumann Shrine
5th Street & Girard Avenue
Philadelphia, PA 19123

Saturday, May 19, 2017

12:00PM Holy Mass
01:00PM Procession of Virgin Mary Icons and Sagalas
02:00PM Barrio Fiesta

 As you can imagine, promoting this massive event requires sufficient funding to ensure it becomes successful. Being selected as Chairman, fundraising is one of my primary responsibilities to help defray the cost of the festivities.

Please help me by being one of the donors, sponsors or advertisers by placing a full-colored page of advertisement in our souvenir program. Suggested donation amount are as follows:

Platinum Donor (one full-colored page advertisement)
$110.00 and above

Gold Donor                                                              
$75.00 to $109.99

Silver Donor                                                              
$50.00 to $74.99

Bronze Donor                                                              
$30.00 to $49.99

These are only suggestions. ANY amount is sincerely appreciated. 

I hope that you and your family can join us to witness the richness of this traditional event dedicated to our beloved Virgin Mary and our Lord Jesus Christ.

Lastly, I would like to sincerely express in advance, my utmost gratitude for your generous voluntary donation and support. Most importantly, your prayers for the success of this year’s celebration. 

May the Lord shower you with more blessings and mother Mary keep you always in her protection.
