Rogate: Inspiring Spirituality. Jesus Inspires. No wonder the Kingdom of God has grown and continues to grow tremendously. Pope Francis encourages us to be inspiring. St. Hannibal was especially inspiring to the poor. This sort of inspiration is a legacy inherited and perpetuated by SHEC. And this legacy goes with a particular exhortation: the desire to do away with greed and injustice, which is made possible by openness to the Holy Spirit. 

Burauen Variety Show. To preach about the God of love and justice who never abandons the poor and the oppressed, leaders and members of the Rogate Youth Ministry, Shec Chapter (RYMSC) practiced from May 1 to June 6, 2014 for the staging of a Variety Show at Burauen, Leyte. Music and Arts can move the heart. Inspirations abound when people not only help but make others happy. The Kingdom, after all, is where all sort of weeping and injustice shall be no more (see Rev 21: 1-5).
