Attending the Novena and Bonding
From Nov 18 to the 26th we have a nine day novena to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal . Nine houses within the barangay or town. Just the street of Quezon. Just walking distance. The prayer starts around 5:30pm and some members of each household will attend in the certain hosting house. Even if we live close by but we rarely get to meet and talk, unless there is a party where everyone is invited.
So this nine day is a time where we all meet, pray then usually the host house prepare some snack . Some prepare simple, some prepare elaborate . So then we all eat talk to each other and laugh and enjoy.
I was not able to attend the first day because I forgot. But so far I have attended the 2-6th day. Just 3 more days. This happens only once a year in Nov.
2 years from now, 2016, our house will host it again because last year it was our area and we hosted one day.
