Last April 7, the Santuario De San Antonio Single Young Adults (SYA) visited the Taguig City Jail (TCJ) for the Ground Breaking of the TCJ Multi-Faith Chapel. The chapel will be designed and built by the SYA community through donations. Jolly Gomez gave a speech referring to Psalm 118, “The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.” Jolly further said that, “The cornerstone is what is used to build a firm foundation. The psalm refers to Jesus but I also referred to the inmates. They are rejected by society but our prayer is that through our chapel they can come out as Christ-centered people who will be the cornerstones of their family and community.’
Present were SYA Prison Ministry head Alli Raval, Arch. Pabs Suarez (SYA), Atty. Jolly Gomez, SSAP-PPC President Jayme Blanco, PNP Regional Director J/CSUPT Emmanuel Sicio, DSC, J/SUPT Clement Laboy and J/SINSP Jundelina Jagunap.
The chapel will be designed by Arch. Pabs Suarez. The architecture will have an open design to accommodate more seating space. Further, it can be used for different activities for the spiritual growth of the TCJ inmates. There are right now 800 inmates in TCJ. Everyone is welcome to join the Prison Ministry activities in TCJ which also includes cathecism, cooking contest, gift giving, etc. For inquiries and donations, please visit our parish office and look for Ms. Nimfa Dumago, SSAP Social Worker or call 843-8832.
