Hon. Malaya Marcelino, Notre Dame

Precious Lord, we thank You for the life and service of Hon. Malaya Marcelino. We pray peace over her as she serves as the Minister of Labour and Immigration. What an important role! Lord, may she feel You ever so near in every decision that she makes. Provide her with support that will give her good counsel and will lead her in the direction of Your will for Manitoba. Please bless and protect her, her husband and their two precious children. In Jesus’ holy name we pray, amen!

Malaya Marcelino was first elected as the MLA for Notre Dame in 2019. She immigrated from the Philippines as a child with her family, who have been strong voices for improving the lives of newcomers. Marcelino served as the official opposition critic for labour and immigration, where she advocated for good jobs for newcomers and better-quality labour conditions, as well as better health care and safety for inner-city families. Prior to becoming an MLA, Marcelino was a stay at home mom and worked part-time as a business writer and researcher for a Manitoba agribusiness firm. She and her husband live in Winnipeg’s West End neighbourhood with their two young children.
