To All My Beloved Servants and Co-journeyers in the Lord:

Peace and every blessing!

Our 2016 fiesta celebration is another grace-filled occasion for our parish to be simply grateful for all our life’s undeserved blessings; to humbly recognized God’s untiring guidance as we go through life’s challenging journey and; to trustingly surrender our best endeavor to God’s life enhancing and changing plan as well. Similarly, this fiesta celebration calls on every member of our parish to charitably contribute in deepening our spiritual communion, strengthening our fraternal bonding, mobilizing our human and material resources to serve those have less in life.

Since our fiesta is coming sooner than we might expect, the theme we selected to give a meaningful direction to all our religious, social, pastoral events and activities is: A Eucharistic Community of Families Guided by the Virtues of St. Anthony. Our traditional fiesta activities such as novena masses, procession, free breakfast, medical-dental mission, mass baptism and wedding, fiesta diner to name a few, hopefully, will provide the venue to facilitate the realization of our theme and that which will be extended throughout the year.

In line with our celebration, I am honored to personally request you and your family to actively participate with your presence and support. Solicited donations activities will go to our fiesta outreach programs, digital scanning of the as-built plans of the parish church and other existing physical structures.

May St. Anthony of Padua, our patron and guide us as we start in all our fiesta preparations, plans and projects. May St. Anthony intercede for us that we have wisdom and compassion in all we do and to do all for God alone in loving service of our sisters and brothers; and mother earth, our common home.

Your co-journeyer in faith and life,

Fr. Reu Jose C. Galoy, OFM
