SHEC welcomes December 2010 with renewed faith and hope with Jesus whose Kingdom mission SHEC shares and continues. Jesus was born for this mission (see ), and so was SHEC. Christmas then takes a most profound meaning once it is seen in the context of the Kingdom of God; and this is what SHEC strives to proclaim, especially with the least, the anawim whom God loves in a very special way. Indeed, God’s wonders never cease! He can never be outdone in generosity. And truly, December has witnessed the outpouring of blessings upon SHEC.

December 20 double treat: Eco-Retreat Center and Almost Heaven Retreat Center.
Last December 20, 2010, the deed of donation for the Eco-Retreat Center at Sitio Maramo, San Mateo, Bulacan was signed by Captain Benhur Gomez.
At the same day, the deed of donation for the Almost Heaven Retreat Center at Banaue, Ifugao was signed by Hon. And Mrs. Gualberto Lumauig.

Musical play for the Kingdom.
To proclaim the essence of Christmas, and to raise funds for the empowerment of the poor, the Essentials Choir of SHEC showcased their multiple talents in a musical play which portrayed Kingdom values as contextualized in the general setting of today’s Filipino families.
