Canonical Visit to the St. Lawrence, the Deacon Parish

The Canonical Visit of Fr. Herman Abcede, the Provincial Superior to the St. Lawrence, the Deacon Parish community in Bangui, Ilocos Norte, that lasted from March 4 until 7, 2016, was highlighted by encounters with the Fr. Sylvestre Robiñol and Fr. Menard Cadeliña, both as a group and even personally. Fr. Herman took the opportunity to visit the chapel in the municipality of Dumalneg, the establishment of which as a parish of its own is the primary reason the presence in that area was accepted by the Rogationists. The chapel in San Isidro was also visited. They even had the chance to meet Msgr. Renato Mayugba, the Bishop of the Diocese of Laoag, who dropped by the parish by surprise. Fr. Herman, with Bro. Christian Allan De Sagun, who documented the entire visit, also met with the Parish Pastoral Council and the Parish Finance Council. With the religious community, the visitators even went to Vintar, Ilocos Norte to visit the community of the Daughters of Divine Zeal there. Special thanks to Bro. Patrick Ian Marcelo for his availability and service, patiently driving for the visitators from Parañaque City to Ilocos Norte, and will continue to Pangasinan and Bataan before going back to Parañaque City.
