La Consolacion



August 14, 2021

The LCUP Community as well as the Augustinian Sisters of our Lady of Consolation (ASOLC) is in deep sadness over the loss of one of its beloved Augustinian Sister, Ma. Angelina “Angie”Abando, OSA on August 14, 2021 due to Pneumonia.

Growing up in a Roman Catholic family in Daet, Camarines Norte, and with a father that is very much devoted to the Theological Values who used to bring her to attend the festive celebration of Nuestra Seňora De Peňafranca – Patron Saint of Bicol at the Colegio De Sta. Isabel in Naga City, Sr. Abando was influenced to enter the convent.

Sister Abando decided to be a part of the Augustinian Sisters of the Philippines when she was teaching at the Daet Parochial School, presently known as the La Consolacion College of Daet. Her first Religious Profession never stopped her in pursuing her studies and soon earned a Bachelor of Science in Education degree. While teaching and understanding the needs of the students are her passion, she also took up units in Library Science and Guidance Counselling at the Philippine Normal University and Clinical Pastoral Education course at Makati Medical Center.

Her mission to respond to the needs of the people through Evangelization, which she shares with the Church, traveled beyond the Philippines as Sr. Abando applied for Foreign Mission in Torino, Italy where she worked with Filipino Migrant Workers and facilitated the Temporary Shelter for Children (TSFC).

Sister Angie served as an educator, leader, and a learner in different Augustinian Schools before she was assigned to the LCUP as an Apostolate of Presence and Prayer Warrior. Sr. Abando shared her last moments with the LCUP Community for four fruitful years.

The ongoing Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) which strictly implements social distancing and prohibits social gatherings, limited the number of people who were allowed to pay their last respect to Sr. Angie, but the prayers for the eternal repose of her soul flooded as her colleagues, friends, families, and other Augustinian Sisters expressed their condolences through the social media. On August 17, 2021, the University held a Requiem Mass for Sr. Angie. Hide
