The outpouring of gifts!!!

St. Hannibal Empowerment Center is so much blest by God through the advent of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and Vice-President Noli De Castro. This was held in San Roque Parish, Pasay City under the direction of Fr. Joey Tuazon. On this important event, January 6, 2007, certificates of lot assignment were given to the deserving landless people from the St. Hannibal Subdivision, Phase 1, Pasay City. Together with this was the giving of other gifts for the people who have been very active in the association. Several government officials were also present to grace the event. This was also attended by four Bishops and priests who have showed their support to the SHEC. Indeed, when we work together with the poor, countless blessings descend.
