Envelop for Mission

From Canada with Love (01/03/2011)

On February 11, 2011 the SVD Quasi-Parish of Busao, Maribojoc, Bohol celebrated her 4th anniversary. The simple and rather quite celebration was highlighted with a mass attended by representatives of the four Barangays which comprise the parish. The majority who attended were the youth from the Busao National High School.

            God has been good to the parish all these years. The parishioners were able to renovate the Sanctuary of the Church, provided Bibles for all the homes and 39 Clusters of Basic Ecclesial Communities had been formed. The Phase I of the Church Renovation of the Church Sanctuary will soon be followed by Phase II. A big donation of 160,000.00 Pesos that came from the SVD PHS triggered the start of the project. The Phase II will commence through a donation from Canada amounting to 296,316.40 Pesos. A confrere-on-leave, Fr. Carlos Jimenez, SVD, inspired his parishioners in Moosejaw, Parish of Our Lady in the Archdiocese of Regina to give this amount to our project. Through Fr. Caloy’s mission animation, the said amount was transferred to the Parish Bank Account on Ferbruary 15, 2011, a wonderful Valentines Gift indeed!

            Thank you, dear parishioners of Our Lady in Moosejaw and “Keep the fires burning” Fr. Caloy! Daghang Salamat!
