FILIPINO-AMERICAN GROUP

The FilAm Group is open to ALL FilAm members of the Parish and ALL their friends. Meetings are held every 2-3 months, depending on scheduled happenings. FilAm is involved with social as well as religious and spiritual activities to meet the needs of our members and of our parish. There are three devotional practices that the FilAm sponsors and proudly celebrate every year:

1)

Flores de Mayo is celebrated to honor and commemorate our Blessed Mother in May. A flower offering by the children of the parish takes place during a special 11:30am Mass, with reception among friends and the St. Robert's community after the Mass.

2)

San Lorenzo Ruiz, the first and only Filipino saint, is honored with a nine-day novena held at various member's homes, culminating with a special mass on the Sunday closest to his feast day. The mass is followed with a reception in the Hall.

3)

Simbang Gabi, a nine-day schedule of masses before Christmas. This is a beautiful cultural tradition to prepare for the Christmas season with reception and fellowship following each mass.

Another important activity that FilAm members are involved is our "famous" lumpia booth during the St. Robert's School Festival. This is an important activity for the school to which FilAm members cook and sell lumpia and other Filipino dishes to help with fund raising for the school.

Also, FilAm members have a very active choir that sings during the 11:30am Mass on Sundays.

FilAm is a very active and committed group of parishioners, and we definitely welcome new members dedicated to our common fellowship for St. Robert's parish.
