FilAm Group Fosters Community by Sharing Tradition, Culture
The Filipino-American Group fosters community by sharing the Filipino tradition and culture with the SFC parish and school.
The SFC FilAm Group is a group of Filipino, Americans and friends who share Filipino tradition and culture with the parish community. This is one of SFC’s fastest growing organizations. We sponsor Filipino traditions and events in the parish to promote greater understanding and friendship between the parish various cultural groups.
The SFC FilAm Group sponsors/organizes a number of parish and school community activities:
- Simbang Gabi at SFC – 2 days in Dec. (Advent Novena masses)
