Date Published: August 6, 2017

The Province’s 8 deacons were ordained to the Order of Presbyters last August 5, 2017 at the Basilica Minore del Santo Niño in Cebu City with His Excellency, the Most Reverend Jose S. Palma, DD, Archbishop of Cebu as the ordaining prelate. The 8 new priests of the Province are:

Fr. Reo G. Cabahug, OSA assigned at the Monasterio de Guadalupe Community, Makati City

Fr. Peter S. Cantones, Jr., OSA assigned at Santa Ana Parish Residence, Burgos, SDN

Fr. Christian E. Funtanares, OSA assigned at Saint Augustine of Hippo Parish Residence, Saguday, Quirino

Fr. Rodel D. Magin, OSA assigned at the University of San Agustin Community, Iloilo City

Fr. John Ion C. Miranda, OSA assigned at Santo Niño Parish, Talisay City, Cebu

Fr. Cyril Jeth N. Tagalog, OSA assigned at Saint Augustine Parish Community, Gubat, Sorsogon

Fr. Melitito Pocholo C. Visda, Jr., OSA assigned at Colegio San Agustin – Bacolod Community, Bacolod City

Fr. Julius D. Tubid, OSA assigned at Colegio San Agustin – Mati Community, Mati City, Davao Oriental

Archbishop Jose Palma, the ordaining prelate, thanked the families of the ordinandi for allowing their children to transform into steadfast servants of God here on Earth. It is indeed a sacrifice for parents to entrust their offspring to the religious life, noting that they would not be with them at a regular, frequent basis. Moreover, he reiterated the fact that priests are chosen, called and sent by the Father to make known his will to all peoples and races.

Please pray for our priests. May they remain faithful to the vows of chastity, poverty and obedience! (with reports from John Bats)
