THE Oikos Sisters, formally called the Poor Household of God (rendered in Greek as Oikos Ptochos Tou Theou), have been working in the Diocese of Borongan for 18 years now. They are a religious missionary community whose members are committed to live a life of prayer, holiness, and service to God’s poor–in the footsteps of St. Francis of Assisi. Caring for the homeless such as the one in photo is just one of their many ministries for the poor. (Alren Beronio / Este News)
