The Filipino Catholic Communities of the Diocese of Limburg gather together not only during religious feast and cultural celebrations but even in social events. Though the weather temperature is cold on this summer season, the Summer Gala was held on June 23, 2018 at H+ Hotel in Bad Soden with 261 guests from Limburg, Wetzlar, Wiesbaden, Bad Homburg, Frankfurt and other nearby places.

Wearing their best gala outfit with elegance and poise, the participants kicked off the party as early as  4:00 pm with dancing and singing entertainments performed by the most talented artists in the community - Antonio Lozanes, Lito Del Rosario and Percy Miranda. Most of the guests are already on the floor dancing while the registration was still on-going.

The fun and dancing continued after the sumptuous buffet dinner was served. Added to the excitement was the raffle tickets drawn in between the performances. The crowd was cheering and yelling whenever the lucky winners of the consolation and grand prizes are called. The ‘Tombola’ draw was one of the fund-generating projects of the Social Action Ministry.

Not only a social gathering, the gala became a venue for new acquaintances, gaining new friends and was an opportunity to meet some of the old friends. As mentioned by our former Chaplain Beni Pola in one of his homily, the gala is also a venue for everyone to have an opportunity to dress formally, elegantly with fashion.  It is a time for everyone to have a break from a monotonous routine at home and from the stressful job in the workplace.

Our chaplain, Father Mares together with the organizers thanked everyone in their participation and support to the Filipino Catholic communities of the Diocese of Limburg. It was a very successful event indeed.

We hope to see you all on the next religious and socialization events of the FCC of the Diocese of Limburg.
