Dear________________:



Greetings of Peace from Venerable Hermandad del Sto. Cristo de Longos (VHSCL) of Binondo Parish!


Our organization is the oldest and still existing Catholic confraternity in the Parish. By 2012, we will be celebrating the 308th year anniversary of our auspicious patron, Santo Cristo de Longos. 


Venerable Hermandad del Sto. Cristo de Longos seeks to preserve, spread and propagate the  sacred devotion to the Holy image of Sto. Cristo de Longos.


For the past three centuries, our Hermandad had yielded eminent men who had committed their lives to the devotion of the miraculous effigy of Sto. Cristo de Longos.  We shall be publishing                                                                            

a coffee-table book to be written by one of our members, Prof. Wilson S. Chua, Ph.D  which will commemorate our history and showcase the indomitable faith and unwavering devotion of the members of the Hermandad to the parishioners in particular and the Catholic Church in general.


The Hermandad is involved in various projects such as catechism, barangay novenas/masses, basic ecclesial communities, feeding programs, mass weddings, first communicants, confirmations, medical missions, etc.  In line with the 308th year celebration, we are raising funds which shall be used for these aforementioned projects.  


For further information about VHSCL, kindly visit our website: sto.cristo.de.longos.org. The honor of your involvement in our 308th year celebration shall be highly appreciated.



Very truly yours,
