The Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament Province of Our Lady of the Assumption [Philippines-Hawaii (USA)-Uganda] is in the mode of celebration and thanksgiving as two of its religious were ordained priests. In a solemn Eucharistic Celebration on the 3rd of February 2018 in Sta. Cruz Church in Manila, Reverend Marco Divine Bernaldo Pangilinan sss and Reverend Alde Orbaneja Bureros sss were ordained to the sacred order of presbyters by the laying on of hands of Most Reverend Sofronio A. Bancud sss, Bishop of Cabanatuan.
In a packed church of clergy, religious, family members, friends, and well-wishers, the blissful celebration on a Saturday morning went meaningfully well. And as a cue of wisdom from our founder, St. Peter Julian Eymard, the newly ordained priests are reminded to:
“Remain always as an apostle of the Eucharist,
it’s a mission of fire near those who are called,
of light for those who do not believe,
of holiness for the soul of the adorer.”
Congratulations brothers! May you shine in Eucharistic ardor and be fruitful in your ministries.
