To uplift the spirits of its employees amid the pandemic, the House of Representatives, under the leadership of Speaker Lord Allan Jay Velasco, on Wednesday joined together the September and October birthday celebrators in a webinar as part of the annual HRep Month celebration. The event was entitled "Live Well, Work Well: Celebration of Life." Fr. Jerry Orbos, SVD, resource speaker of the event, encouraged the attendees to fight COVID-19 with discipline and great faith to overcome the challenges brought about by the pandemic. Despite the unusual celebration of their birthdays this year, the House staff were reminded by Fr. Orbos to still have joyful hearts and face life with gratitude because God is stronger than the COVID-19 virus. Deputy Secretary General Dr. Ramon Ricardo Roque of the Administrative Department and Director Angeline Garcia of the Information and Communications Technology Service, who are also celebrating their birthdays, further shared inspirational words of encouragement to the employees. Almost 200 celebrators took part in the event hosted by the Human Resource Management Service.
