On June 5, the St. Paul Parish of Payao was given to the Divine Word Missionaries. Fr. Mike Mahinay, SVD, the District Superior of the SVD Ipil Mission was installed the parish priest. Together with him is Fr. Ramon “Ondoy” Espuelas, SVD as parochial vicar.
The historical turn-over of the St. Paul Parish also means that the entire Vicariate 5 of the Diocese of Ipil will be under the shepherding of the Divine Word Missionaries. What a grace! We ask God to bestow his blessing upon the people of God in this part of the world that our missionary endeavors may bear fruit abundantly.
