Sueyoshicho Filipino CommunityWe are a Filipino Catholic Christian Community of Sueyoshicho Parish formed for the purpose of mutually supporting one another in our community including our families in Japan, nourishing our social, cultural and spiritual life based on our Christian faith. Our community is comprised of the active members and the general attendees of our English Mass held on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month. Anyone is welcomed to join our community and all is invited to celebrate with us the English Mass. We nourish our Spiritual Christian life through the Sunday’s worship, Advent and Lenten recollection and through our daily witness of loving our brothers and sisters in our community and loving our neighbors as well. We extend support to members facing social and other problems while living in Japan, in any way we could. Other regular activities that we do: House to House Block Rosary every 1stSunday after our English Mass where we pray together with the host family and share reflections on the Gospel reading of each mystery, Simbang Gabi during Advent season,outings like summer camp and hanami and potluck party on special occasions like Christmas and birthdays. As part of the whole parish Christian community, we do common programs, eventsand activities with the other languagecommunities. Foremost of the parish concerns is the faith education of the children. We take part in it and encourage parents to have their children join the Sunday school where they could learn basic catechesis and learn to relatewith other children of same ages. We also participate in the diocesan events and activities, when needed. Our community has been in existence for almost 30 years. What we have now, we owe this to the members who started this community. Some of them have moved to other countries or returned to our homeland. We try to maintain global network and updates through our official facebook account. We welcome you all to Sueyoshicho Catholic Church!

The Block Rosary

The Block Rosary is devotion where an image or statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary visits the home of a family for a month or so. It encourages the family to pray the Rosary everyday not only for their own intentions but for the intentions of the whole community.

In Sueyoshi Cho Catholic Filipino Community, the Block Rosary has been practiced for more than 7 years now and they have celebrated the Anniversary last June 2, 2019. Headed by the Sue Yoshi cho Filipino Community Coordinators and by the blessing of Fr. Hamada and Fr. Darryl, the image of the Blessed Virgin Mary was procession inside the church at the beginning of the mass while singing a Marian song. A special celebration was done right after the mass at the home of one of the community coordinator.

Block Rosaries are held every first Sunday of the month right after the English mass. The recitation of the Rosary is said to welcome the image into the new home. Although it is not a requirement and is optional, the new host hands out refreshments after the prayers to those who participated.

The Block Rosary was established to promote the neighborhood Rosary prayer and devotion to the Blessed Mother. It is commendable that such an initiative is reaching out not only to the Marian devotees but to the whole community as well.

This devotion has enriched the lives of those who take a sincere part in it and requests for a schedule for the image to revisit their homes are most frequent (wedding anniversaries, birthdays, when a family member is sick, or on the death anniversary of a family member or relative). Requesting a visit is not for members only, anyone who is willing to host the image of the Blessed Mother for a month or for an occasion could just simply contact Sueyoshi Cho Filipino Community Coordinators and most definitely, a schedule would be put in order.

Through the Block Rosary, the community and families’ faith are strengthened. The family is the hope of the Church and the Block Rosary is one of the great family traditions of the Catholic Church that we can pass on to our children as an inheritance. It is also a good way for community to get to know each other better. The Block Rosary fosters not only common prayer but friendships and goodwill as well.
