20 couples from the different companies in SM Group officially tied their knots in a church wedding ceremony during the 6th Kasalan sa SM sponsored by the Felicidad T. Sy Foundation, Inc. (FTSFI) – an affiliate of SM Foundation recently.
The mass wedding was officiated at the Shrine of Jesus the Way, the Truth and the Life Churchin Pasay City by by Rev. Fr. Rey Reyes, Fr. Vic Rey Duron, Fr. Brian Tayag, Fr. Paolo Asprer, Fr. Boogie Tacdoro, and Fr. Lawrence de Peralta. Nanang Felicidad Sy, the matriarch of the SM group, attended the ceremony and did not miss the chance to see the couples exchange ‘I dos’ with each other.
The FTSFI shouldered the expenses from the church design and arrangement to the sumptuous reception after the ceremony. The couples only shouldered the expense for their gowns/barongs and the processing of the required documents.
This effort is part of the numerous religious activities of Nanang, who is also behind the construction and operations of masses and churches/shrines inside and near SM malls which aims to highlight the spiritual well-being of SM employees and mall goers.
To date, the FTSF wedded 115 couples since the project began six years ago.
