San Roque Chapel Celebrates their Annual Fiesta

One of our parish chapels at Brgy. Patag, San Roque Chapel celebrated its chapel fiesta on August 16 in honor of their patron saint, St. Rock. To prepare for this, they had a 9 days novena Mass. Other activities include a “Walk with Faith” on August 9 and a Zumba Dance exercise after the Walk. These fiesta activities are part of their endeavors of living a Christian life.

On the feastday itself, there were two Fiesta Masses celebrated. The 6:00am Mass was presided by Fr. Joel Lasutaz, SSS. And right after this Mass, a procession of the statue of St. Rock followed. The 9:00 am Mass was presided by Lenen Deciar, SSS. Within this Mass, 9 children were baptized.

People from other places around the city came to celebrate the fiesta.

Overall, the celebration was truly meaningful living of Christian life at San Roque Community especially as they emulate the life of St. Rock.


Programa sa Pagpuyo sa Kristohanong Kinabuhi Launched

Sacred Heart Parish launches its new program called “Programa sa Pagpuyo sa Kristohanong Kinabuhi” on September 2 at 5 in the afternoon at the Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Community at Oro Chain Village, Zone 2, Carmen during their monthly community Mass. In English, this is translated as “Program of Living a Christian Life.”

This program aims at helping our parishioners live their lives following the life of Christ, His words and deeds.  They are led to live a life according to the threefold mission of Jesus received at our baptism.

For a period of four months, the specific objectives are:

1)      The people will appreciate and embrace the identity of a true Christian.

2)      The community will have a weekly prayer at their chapel, sharing and learning about the Word of God through a short catechesis.

3)      The community will have regular and occasional activities that serve the whole community like a feeding program, care of the environment, care for the elderly and the sick, livelihood program, etc… that respond to the needs of the community.

4)      The community will have a group of trained and committed lay faithful to serve as catechists and as servant leaders.

This program is hoped to be implemented in the whole parish after a favorable evaluation of the initial implementation at this particular community.


New Feeding Program Initiated

The Christian community at Oro Chain, Zone 2 Carmen in our Parish graciously welcomed the implementation of our “Programa sa Pagpuyo sa Kristohanong Kinabuhi” on September 2 during the monthly community Mass. To carry out this program, around 40 children and other members of the community lined up after the Mass, which was presided by Fr. Joel, to receive their share of the Arroz Caldo, which is a soup cooked with chicken and rice in ginger-flavored broth. They brought with them their own cups, soap bowls and spoons. Receiving their meal, they gathered at the chapel sharing their joy. This feeding program will be done regularly every month after the community Mass.

This feeding program is living out our kingly mission of living a Christian life.
