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. DOLLAR ACCOUNT NUMBER: 158881300038; Account Name, Most Rev. Sergio L. Utleg, D.D., Victor R. Bolosan, M.D. and Flordelina T. Cadelina.

just to check it...

the use of misa de gallo and misa de aguinaldo...

in the Spanish era of the Philippines... Misas de Gallo is what you call the "Mass of the Cock" or "Dawn Mass" because it is held normally when the cock starts its 4:00 habit...

while Misa de Aguinaldo is a term used for the Christmas Eve Mass...

please differentiate it properly...

God bless!

Thanks for your comment.

Liturgically, the Aguinaldo masses are actually the nine dawn masses preceding Christmas. They are called as such (aguinaldos or gifts) because they are considered as a kind of Christmas gift of the people to the Lord who comes as well as a Christmas gift of the Lord to his people.

These nine masses are also called misas de gallo to indicate the timing of these masses early a cockrow, around 4:00 a.m.
