As the holiday season is upon us, the three-day Expo could be a venue where shoppers can buy their gifts. They can choose from its products from different marginalized community partners, ranging from food, home and ladies accessories, personal care products, artwork from resident inmates of penal communities cared by Caritas Restorative Justice Ministry, and other gift items and decors presented on different hubs. The blessing and the opening of the Expo will be led by His Excellence Cubao Bishop Honesto Ongtioco, D.D. on its first day tomorrow at 11:00am.
