On September 21, 2016, the St. Matthew Province paid festive tribute to its patron, the apostle and evangelist, highlighted by the celebration of the Holy Eucharist at the chapel of the Oasis of Prayer, dedicated to and named after the great saint. Fr. Herman Abcede, presided over the liturgy, with Fr. John Joffer Lucas delivering the homily, before an eager crowd of friends, benefactors and members of the growing Family of the Rogate. The feast, which was preceeded by a solemn triduum, ended with some traditional Filipino games.
