The theme for the feast this year is “Sto. Niňo: Source of Communion, Protector of Creation.” This theme comes from two main sources: First, the current Archdiocesan/CBCP thrust set for 2021 celebration: 2017 is dedicated to the Year of the Parish: Communion of Communities and the basic Augustinian Spirituality on Community Life. Second, the papal enclical Laudato Si’ of Pope Francis.

This year’s Hermano and Hermana: Mr. Leo and Cristina Manguilimutan. During the press conference, there was so much kilig factor as their story of faith and devotion was shared. As devotees, they had a favorite spot at the Basilica whenever they attend Holy Masses. However, there was a time when they had a very serious fight to the point of not speaking to each other. Leo went to the Basilica to pray and attended the Holy Mass. Cristina also went to the Basilica and saw her husband right there on their favorite spot. Both of them had a change of heart.

Glad to be part of the occasion!

After the Holy Mass during the canonical erection of the Immaculate Conception Parish of Colawin, the bishop and the 27 concelebrating priests also planted seedlings around the vicinity of the parish, as part of the promotion on the care for the environment. I am really glad to be a part of the occasion!

The Divine Word Missionaries (SVD) of the Philippine Southern Province (PHS) had their seminar workshop on school and hospital governance at the SVD Retreat House of the University of San Carlos (USC) in Talamban Campus, Cebu City on June 17-18, 2016. In this one and a half day seminar workshop, the basic and best governance practices of Catholic schools in the Philippines, the reportorial requirements of the Securities and Exchange Commission, and financial literacy, particularly understanding financial statements were discussed extensively.

 

Start of the Session

It also included cases and issues concerning school Board practices, SEC updates, and analyzing financial statements. Lecturers are PHS Secretary of Education Ministry Fr. Peru Dayag, SVD; USC VP for Finance Fr. Jun Rebayla, SVD; Atty. Alma Estrada-Dlena and Atty. Tara Tsarina Perez-Retuya, lawyers of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

According to the Fr. Dayag, impetus of the seminar-workshop was “to deepen the understanding of the participants on governance practices of Catholic schools in the Philippines, particularly the SVD schools; to make the participants aware of the functions of the Securities and Exchange Commission vis-à-vis registered corporations, and; to increase the knowledge of the SVDs in analyzing the financial statements of the schools and hospitals.” This is also in preparation for the other members of the congregation whenever they become part of the Board of Trustees in the future.

Archbishop Jose S. Palma officiated the canonical erection of the Immaculate Conception Parish of Colawin last June 23, 2016. This new parish is located in the mountain barangay of the municipality of Argao, around 80 kilometers away from the city of Cebu. Part of the decree of canonical erection reads, “we hereby elevate the quasi-parish of Immaculate Conception into a parish with all its rights and privileges.”

In a solemn Eucharistic celebration, the first parish priest Fr. Mario Villacastin was also installed.  Under the direction of Canon Law Canon 519, “he (parish priest) exercises the pastoral care of the community entrusted to him under the authority of the diocesan Bishop, whose ministry of Christ he is called to share, so that for this community he may carry out the offices of teaching, sanctifying and ruling with the cooperation of other priests or deacons and with the assistance of lay members of Christ’s faithful, in accordance with the law.” The new parish has an ecclesial territory of seven barangays.

In his homily, Archbishop Jose Palma reminded the people of God that: “ang pagtukod sa bag-ong parokya ug ang pag-instolar sa bag-ong kura paroko – kining tanan nindot nga pasalig nato pagpakita sa dakong gugma sa Dios natong tanan nga iyang banay, nga iyang mga tawo.” (The erection of the new parish and the installation of the first parish priest – all these are wonderful assurance of God’s love to us, his people).

Here are some of the memes I created for  Amoris Laetitia (On the Love of the Family), the latest post-synodal Apostolic Exhortation of Pope Francis. It was released last April 8, 2018. I have started reading it, and posted some of the quotable quotes in my facebook page. Here are some of them:
