The roots of the guild began in 1994 when a group of Filipino families gathered for First Saturday Reparation. A year after this gathering it evolved into a weekly prayer meeting. Simultaneously a devotion to the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy also began. As the group grew together in faith they realized that they could make additional contributions to Our Lady Star of the Sea parish beyond their prayers and devotions.
In 1998, the guild was formally incorporated to the parish with Our Lady as primary patroness and San Lorenzo as the second patron. The guild’s vision is to plant the seeds of devotion to San Lorenzo Ruiz de Manila throughout the world. Its mission is to build a legacy of faith and service to the parish, the Archdiocese and the universal church; to assist our pastor in fulfilling his vision and mission for the parish; and to share the rich Filipino cultural and spiritual heritage with the whole community of faith. San Lorenzo Guild meets on the second Saturday of the month at 10:00 AM in Parish Center Room 2.
