RCAM laity excited to ‘meet Christ’ in new parish priests

Posted By: admin On:


MANILA, June 27, 2015—As some parishes prepare to receive their newly assigned shepherds, members of the laity in the Archdiocese of Manila (RCAM) look forward to the new development as another “opportunity of encountering the Lord” through these “chosen few” who are privileged to act in His Person.

Fresh start

“[This is] a fresh start for those parishes which will be placed under a new administration. It will also be an opportunity for us in the archdiocese to experience another encounter with God through our new parish priests, as well as those priests assigned in the respective ministries in RCAM,” Manila resident Harold Eugenio Marcelino told CBCP News in an interview.

On this note, Marcelino, who attends daily Mass at San Roque Parish Church near Blumentritt, Manila, and who formerly served as secretary to then Manila Auxiliary Bishop Bernardino Cortez, urged all RCAM faithful to take on a more active role in their capacity as laity by volunteering in their parishes.

“Lay parishioners are called upon to get themselves involved in the different programs in the.Archdiocese, to help priests in their various ministries,” he added.

About time

For Prof. Nestor Limqueco of the Company of St. Dominic (CSD), one of the several approved secular institutes under RCAM, it is welcome news that their priests are about to take on other assignments given that many, if not most, of them have been in the same parishes since the time of retired Manila Archbishop Gaudencio B. Rosales.

“It’s about time this happens. As the saying goes, ‘Too much familiarity leads to contempt.’ Moreover, I believe the newly ordained young priests who have the right qualifications should also be given the chance to run parishes,” explained Limqueco, who is connected to the Nuestra Señora del Perpetuo Socorro Parish in Sampaloc, Manila.
