Talleres de Nazaret
Two of the sisters that I met during the retreat was Sr. Erlin, SSJ and Sr. Maripaz, SSJ. SSJ stands for Siervas de San Jose, a religious and apostolic institute founded in Spain in 1874.
We thank the Siervas de San Jose sisters for always taking care of the singing and of the liturgy during our morning prayers and daily masses during our retreat. Their beautiful voices and guitar-playing helped all of us reflect on God's goodness better.
Aside from taking care of our morning prayers and daily masses, we also found out that the sisters were providing livelihood to women workers at Talleres de Nazaret. In collaboration with Mother Bonifacia Rodriguez Foundation, Inc., patronage of Talleres de Nazaret products contributes to the scholarship fund and formation of poor young women.
Talleres de Nazaret offers liturgical vestments and church apparel; apparel, bags, and accessories; as well as various food products. In the area of apparel, for example, they have shirts with designs that promote Philippine culture -- designs like the bahay kubo (or nipa hut), vinta boat, and the kalesa. In terms of food, they have preserved fruits, jam, and candies, as well as snacks like crispy squid rings.
