The coming of the Blessed Sacrament priest and brothers to the Philippines in 1957 paved the way for many young women to get acquainted with the Eucharistic spirituality of St. Peter Julian Eymard that led the first batch of Filipinas who went to Australia to become Servants of the Blessed Sacrament in November 1959 and May 1960.
In 1964, at the invitation of his Eminence, Rufino Cardinal Santos, Mother Berth, then Superior General and her council decided to start a foundation in the Philippines. The Filipinas who were formed in Australia returned to the Philippines to begin the foundation on May 24, 1964. The first stage of the foundation was hopping from N. Domingo, Quezon City to La Ignacina, Sta. Ana, Manila and finally to Novaliches, Quezon City on July 16, 1968. From here, the Eucharistic fire was spread as they found another Eucharistic niche in Davao on October 7, 1985 and in Pueblo, Colorado, USA on July 7, 2010.
They unite contemplation and apostolic love in a life of adoration and in activities which are in harmony with this life inspired by the Eucharist and directed toward this mystery of faith.
The Servants of the Blessed Sacrament in the Philippines celebrated their fifty (50) years of Eucharistic presence and witnessing on May 25, 2014. They are grateful to God for the privilege of sharing their Eucharistic life to the Filipino people for 50 years and look forward to many more years of Eucharistic life and service.
