Finally, our International regent of the Daughters of Mary Immaculate International, Sis Lydia Ramirez is home.
Two years of going around the country, attending regional assemblies, visiting circles giving inspirational talks and as keynote speaker, the indefatigable Dr. Lydia Ramirez made her Valedictory last December 1st, 2012 during the Installation of the Officers of the Daughters of Mary Immaculate for year 2013-2014.
She was accorded a standing ovation after her speech and a Plaque of Recognition signed by Monsignor Francisco Tantoco, Jr., International Chaplain and Rev. Fr. Jerome Cruz, Vice International Chaplain was awarded her which reads:
The Daughters of Mary Immaculate International awards this Plaque of Recognition to Sister Lydia Ramirez
For her dedication and zeal as International Regent of the Daughters of Mary Immaculate International for the Year 2011-2012
For tirelessly pursuing her dream of "A CIRCLE IN EVERY PARISH"
For the UNSURPASSABLE feat of attending all conferences and assemblies of the organization, North to South, rain or shine and
For successfully strengthening the bonds of the Daughters of Mary Immaculate sisterhood.
For truly, Sister Lyding, as she is fondly called in our circle, the Saint Joseph Circle of Zamboanga City where she belongs has a record of bringing to join the Daughters of Mary Immaculate International roughly 675 women from all over the country through her program of A CIRCLE IN EVERY PARISH. 43 new circles, were organized from the different regions.
A minimum of 15 is required to form a circle which should increase to 25 in a year.
The Squirettes, the Youth Arm of the DMI had increase to 28 circlettes during her stewardship. Through her initiative a circle in Macau was established last November, 2011, and the first ever Regional Assembly for Region XIV took place here in Zamboanga City on November 25, 2012 with 400 delegates coming from Ipil, Dipolog, Ozamis, Iligan, Basilan and Zamboanga City.
Welcome home sister Lyding. And as one DMI from the National Office, International Advocate Sis Judge Miriam Angot said... "You will be missed... your kind of humor, your colorful intellectual leadership." Our gain! (Rose Bulawin, SJC ZC)
