The Episcopal Church of the Philippines has long been committed to offering health services to the people it serves. It has a range of hospitals and health programmes that serve people irrespective of their creed. The Diocese of the Southern Philippines has supported Brent Hospital since its inception in 1914. Through this time the hospital has grown and developed its expertise and now is looking expectantly to celebrating its centenary in two years time. To help set the scene for this important moment, they have produced a video that reveals much of the character and values of the hospital. You can watch this video on YouTube on this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KlK7Yovzac8
Here is yet another example of the belief within Anglican communities
that providing health care remains a fundamental element of the mission
of the Church. The integrated nature of prayer, teaching and healing
seems natural in so many settings. We wish the diocese every blessing as
they make further preparations to celebrate their valuable work.
