Foundation for the church-construction project in Cadaratan, Bacarra put up!

The construction of the OUR LADY OF FATIMA PARISH CHURCH started anew, September 8, the birthday of Mama Mary. Very crucial in this project is the financial consideration being tacked by the whole parish community. To address this concern, we, the Parish Pastoral and Finance Councils, together with our newly-appointed parish priest, Rev. Leonardo L. Ruiz, planned to put up a FOUNDATION for the continuation and completion of the construction of the parish church.

The Foundation is chaired by our beloved Bishop, Most Rev. Sergio L. Utleg, D.D. and the members of the Board include Victor R. Bolosan, M.D., Rosalina R. Javier, Flordelina T. Cadelina, Eugenia M. Mendoza, Emilia B. Agonoy and Dante Subia, all from Our Lady of Fatima Parish.

Registration of the Foundation with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is under way.

Architects and Engineer: Arch. Coleen Cajigal and Arch. Joemar Bolosan, Engr. Eduardo Cid.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE IS NEEDED. For those who wish to send their donations directly through the bank, this is our bank: PHILIPPINE NATIONAL BANK, Batac Branch, Batac, Ilocos Norte, Philippines.

EAP’s first Magna Cum Laude to receive DSAC awards

by Roselyn Foronda & Alanah Mae P. Ramelb

For garnering the highest honors so far by a scholar graduate under the Educational Assistance Program (EAP) of the Diocesan Commission on Social Action (DSAC), Eldefonso B. NAtividad, Jr. will be awarded by the Commission in a fitting ceremony in one of the First Friday Masses at the Bishop’s Residence.

Natividad who earned his Bachelor in Secondary Education (BSE) degree at the College of Teacher Education (CTE) and graduated Magna Cum Laude will receive two medals: Bishop’s medal (given to all DSAC scholars who finished a four year degree) and the DSAC Director’s medal (given to DSAC scholars who graduate with honors).

During his speech at the Silaw Awards (Recognition Day) at Mariano Marcos State University-College of Teacher Education (MMSU-CTE), Natividad was glowing with zeal, joy, confidence and satisfaction as he delivered a speech in response to the fruitful and meaningful experiences molded within the portals of his Alma Mater. He conveyed inspiring messages to his fellow graduates. He also extended his heartfelt gratitude to those who, in one way or another, have helped him achieve his dreams. Natividad, Jr. finally challenged poor students like him : “Inadequacy is never a hindrance to success.”

Natividad has been a beneficiary of the Commission on Social Action’s Educational Assistance Program (EAP) for six years. His experiences in the Commission’s apostolate formed him as an academician who is rooted more on realities than mere theories.

Moreover, two other scholars and a volunteer of the Commission on Social Action graduated this year. Germelina R. Domingo, a beneficiary of EAP for four years, earned her Degree in Bachelor of Science in Management at the Divine Word College of Laoag (DWCL). While Meryl Corpuz, a fresh face under the program, received her high school diploma at the Ilocos Norte National High School. She will be pursuing her chosen degree at DWCL still under the EAP of the Commission.

Furthermore, Alyssa Marie P. Ramelb, a student volunteer of the office, finished high school with honors at the Mariano Marcos State University Laboratory High School. She is from Bacarra, Ilocos norte and has been connected with the social action apostolates for the past four consecutive years. She will be enrolling Bachelor of Science in Accountancy at MMSU.
