Good Shepherd Sisters prepare for the 2010 National and Local elections that will be held in the Philippines on Monday, May 10.

"QRT@1043" or Quick Response Team was formed by the sisters residing at the 1043 Aurora Blvd. compound in Quezon City to answer possible needs that may arise during the elections.

During the meeting held on May 8 at the Rosary Hall of Good Shepherd Community (GSC), Sr. Ailyn Binco said for "QRT at 1043" Sisters formed groups like, Prayer, Roving, Food, Information and Documentation.

The Good Shepherd Sisters are from the Provincialate, Euphrasian Community, St. Bridget School, GSC, Bahay Ugnayan and the formation communities.

These groups will coordinate with Good Shepherd Sisters in Metro Manila and in other parts of the country, through the Ministry Team of the Philippine Province, to help ensure that honest and peaceful elections are held in the country.

The Novitiate and the Sisters in the Infirmary will be among those whose participation include praying for honest and peaceful elections.

Sisters have also signed up to be in the Roving Team that would monitor the conduct of the first automated polls. The group will also help in the delivery of food to the polling places, if necessary.

Good Shepherd Sisters in the provinces may get in touch with Sr. Cecilia Torres RGS and Sr. Ailyn Binco for further information.

Sr. Maureen Catabian, of the WJPIC (Women. Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation) Office volunteered to be with a group of national and international observers who would go to Abra to observe the conduct of this year's elections.
