Diaconal and Presbyteral Ordination

The Lord has given our fraternity another reason to celebrate. Three of our brothers, Rommel Tapin OFM, Errol Ortiz OFM, and Glenn Dumagdag OFM, were ordained to the Order of Deacons and our Brother Josue Gorgonio OFM to the Order of Presbyters, through the laying on of hands of Most Rev. Filomeno Bactol, OFS, DD.The solemn event wast held at San Vicente Ferrer Parish in Sambag II, Urgello, City City and attended by friars, family members, and many friends of the ordinandi from different parts of the country. In his homily, Bishop Bactol reminded the brothers that their ordination is not for themselves but for the service of God's people. We thank the Lord of vocations for sustaining them in his grace. Please pray that these brothers of ours may become more faithful to their new ministry in the Church.
