Santuario Celebrates Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel with Baptism
Our active communities in Zone 2 Carmen, Oro Chain Village and Binonoan, celebrated the Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel with a Fiesta Mass and Baptism last July 15, 2017.
A few weeks before the fiesta, the community of Oro Chain Village and Binonoan attended a Pre-Baptism seminar given by Sr. Marge P. Manabat, TMM and our parish catechists as preparation for their Fiesta Celebration. They had willingly participated in the seminar and are now ready to receive the Sacrament of Baptism which is the basis of the whole Christian life and doorway to all the other Sacraments.
On the 15th of August 2017, the whole community of Carmen celebrated Mass in Honor of the Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. Our active parishioners of Oro Chain Village and Binonoan had separate celebrations. The Baptism was help in Oro Chain Village where our Shrine Rector and Parish Priest, Fr. Froilan R. A. Briones, SSS baptised 17 infants. In Binonoan, the mass was presided by one of our assistant priests in the shrine, Fr. Clifford Barrios, SSS.
Santuario Eucaristico in partnership with the community of Oro Chain Village and Binonoan is truly grateful to the divine providence of our Lord and the intercession of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel for another successful fiesta celebration and welcomes our new brothers and sisters to Christianity! In Fr. Froilan’s homily, he gave us a reminder that “True devotion to Mary consists of leading holy lives in conformity with her virtues of humility, gentleness, love, penance and prayer.” Happy fiesta to all!
