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.

Laoag attends regional assembly on mission

Sr. Evangeline Pabalate, MCST and Ms. Marybel Melchor-Pajela of the Commission on Mission represented the diocese in the Regional Assembly for Luzon of Diocesan Mission Directors and Collaborators held in Kamay ni Jesus Healing Center in Lucban, Quezon, July 14-17.

With the theme, “That all may be one,” the assembly aimed to orient the participants on the regional situation and the relevance of the Pontifical Mission Societies and to propose on-going formation program and regional direction on mission.

The assembly was opened by a welcome address by Msgr. Leandro Castro, PC, Vicar General of Lucena Diocese, and the presentation of the delegates in the evening of the first day. The second day was spent on reporting on the four Pontifical Mission Societies. The third day was dedicated for the reporting of the different ecclesiastical territories on their mission programs and activities.

Fr. Edgar Javier, SVD talked on "Re-visioning our Mission in Contemporary Times: Asian Perspective on Mission and Spirituality" on the fourth day.

The assembly of Luzon mission workers was closed with the celebration of the Holy Mass presided over by Most Rev. Emilio Marquez, DD, Bishop of Lucena.

Most Rev. Gilbert A. Garcera, DD, Bishop of Daet and National Director of PMS-Philippines, strongly requested the transmission of the proceedings of the assembly to the collaborators in mission in the dioceses down to the parishes.

Parish reps to attend meeting on mission

It is for this purpose that the office of the Diocesan Commission on Mission requests the attendance of two catechists per parish to a meeting on August 1 at 8 o’clock in the morning (about two hours)at the Janssen Hall. Since this day will be the second catechetical coordinators’ meeting, the parish coordinator will be one of the two catechist-representatives.

It is also asked that a representative from the diocesan schools, e.g. Values/Religion Teacher/Coordinator, attend the meeting.
