Five of our 7 New Deacons
The Maramisa Class of the Society of the Divine Word (SVD) had their Diaconate Ordination last June 27, 2009 at San Isidro, Abra.
Very colorful Church
Bakit hindi sa Tagaytay? Kasi 100 years na kaming mga SVD sa Pinas this year and ang Abra ang cradle of the SVD mission. So, to make connections between the past and the present, sa Abra ang venue ng Centennial Diaconate Ordination.
The tomb of Fr. Juan Scheiermann, SVD —
the pioneer SVD missionary to the Philippines.
The Solemn Litany of the Saints
The Laying of the Hand By Bishop Leopoldo Jaucian, SVD
So, we have 7 new SVD deacons: Rev. Severo Biton, Rev. Cris Salar, Rev. Abraham Ronald Borja, Rev. Dante Barril, Rev. Ferdie Bajao, Rev. Mike Namba and Rev. Benjo Awitin. (Note: the deacon beside the bishop at the right is not an SVD).
Congratulations mga confreres! Sana makabingwit kami ng isa diyan para dito sa Olutanga Island, Zambonga Sibugay. Hehe.
Maraming salamat kay Fr. Gil Rochar Dulay, SVD for providing the pictures! Mabuhay ka Kuya Mountain!
