No Slowing Down in Serving

At 78 years old, Dr. Grace Pasigan is one of the ‘more senior’ among the active members of the CFC Handmaids of the Lord. But she is not just an active member who attends prayer meetings regularly. She also serves as a Country Coordinator for the Caribbean and goes on mission every year!


“In spite of my weak knees and aching back, I have gone on mission to China, Qatar, Australia, the Caribbean, different parts of Europe and the United States,” Dra. Grace, as she is fondly called, shared. And as if going on mission overseas is not enough, Dr. Grace also has her regular apostolates. Every 2nd Friday of the month, she, together with fellow doctor - Handmaids Dr. Connie Abesamis-Roy and Dr. Ging Fernandez, hold clinic at the Correctional Institute for Women where they treat and dispense medication to inmates there. On a person-al capacity, she also serves in the medical clinic at the San Roque Parish in Mandaluyong. Being an obstetrician-gynecologist, women at the CFC Global Mission Center likewise consult her for their health concerns.


Indeed, age can neverbe an impediment in serving the Lord actively through the community. In the Metro Manila Central A Sector where she be-longs, Dra. Grace is also in the ANCOP Core Group, the CFC Medical Team, a member of the HOLD International Conference Core Group, and the HOLD Elders Core.


As of this writing (September 27th), Dra. Grace is flying to Europe for mission, and won’t be coming back until October 26th. There, together with other leaders in the Handmaids of the Lord, Dra. Grace will be serving in the Echo Conferences in Monaco, and in Soest and Delmenhorst (Germany). They will also go around to other countries for pastoral visits and to give teachings.


The movements may be a little slower, and every step Dra. Grace takes may be a tad cautious, but she gives her resounding ‘Yes!’ every time she is called to serve.(Alma Alvarez)
