|"We were all teary-eyed upon seeing our dear sisters helpless and really wanting for attention. Sr. Josefa would not let go my hand and kept asking me to come back to visit her. I had a hard time fighting back tears as I remember how she was when she was our Dean of the commerce Department. I strongly suggest to all of the Paulinians to plan at least a half day visit to the Vigil House whenever they are in Manila. You will understand and see the reason why it really is important to work together and build the new Vigil House."

|Our Class EGROUP was born on 22 June 2001, the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
We started with just a few members. It took a lot of detective work to locate missing classmates, but after a spell, the efforts paid off, and email volume within the loop swelled to as high as 50++ emails per day! What else would you have expected - some of us haven't seen or heard from one another in thirty-odd years! Eventually, this tapered to a more sedate level, but not before complaints were heard about "tidal waves" of emails flooding members' inboxes.
Our classmates have been having a swell time revivifying their glorious youth, and swapping stories, jokes, recipes and photos through the loop. Discussions dwell on just about anything and everything under the sun,, but prayer and intercessions always take special priority.
Off the loop,too, us Golden Girls, have been holding regular reunions, get-togethers-cum-prayer-sessions... (please see Golden Gimmicks or Chronicles). Seems we just can't get enough, especially with Lahla Pascual Laforteza around. She has brought a lot of joy and laughter to our get-togethers, for she can certainly outdo some of our better known stand-up comediennes.
Our heartfelt gratitude to Ana Agdinaoay Tadena of SPCM-HS75 who's been a real godsend and who came along at just the right time to give me much needed encouragement and technical support, not just at the onset of our egroup but up to the present. Many thanks too, to webmaster Jen for allowing me to use her logo and banner in our Alma Mater's website.
For our CLASS DIRECTORY ,which is incorporated into the egroup website, a major part of the credit must go to Socorro (Corrie) Mendoza Dichoso, who painstakingly did the basic spadework over a number of years, tracking down, locating and recording the addresses and phone numbers of classmates - all this well before the advent of the internet and email. Mention may be made of the fact that, for the longest time, Corrie has also been our resident reunion director, town crier and walking-obituary-cum-medical-bulletin rolled into one.
The database compiled by Corrie was expanded and encoded by me and uploaded into our egroup website. Since then, many of our clasamates have been pitching in to help locate missing classmates, update and adjust entries, and so forth. Particular mention may be made of Elizabeth Pineda- Concepcion, whom we fondly refer to as our very own Sherlock Homes, for tracing some of our classmates overseas. Her enthusiasm and gung-ho spirit have over the months infected the whole class. Nancy Guevarra Narciso, our Maurice Arcache aka Barbara Walters aka celebrity reporter of the tres chic SPCM65 socialites, followed suit and was able to trace more or less 24 of our missing classmates in just a matter of weeks.
Susan de Jesus Ongoco, tagged as our Recipe Queen because of her being able to come up with recipes at a moment's notice, came in and took care of our Recipe Files, The In-Between-Years File and the Resume File.
Meantime, on account of space limitations in the Photo section of our egroup, Beth initiated the establishment of a website in MyFamily.com, to accommodate more of our vintage photos as well as more recent pictorials.
Our Class WEBSITE was supposed to have been created together with our egroup. But I did not realize that the egroup alone would occupy most of my time from its inception to the present. So I decided to defer creating the website.
Ana was privy to this, as she had been encouraging me to do the website. So, gracious as ever, she created for us a beautiful '65 webpage in their '75 website.
Even as I am grateful for that, I felt that it might put undue pressure on her to maintain it for us. So again with the Sacred's Heart's inspiration, on His feastday, 07 June 2002, I was able to conceptualize and launch our website homepage.
