PPC Has New Chaircouple
In a meeting last February 3 called by our parish priest Fr. Luke Dobles, he announced the appointment of the new PPC Chaircouple. Accepting their new responsibility are Kuya Cesar and Ate Mayette Tiongson, both pastoral workers of SLRP. They will now head the pastoral council for the next two years. In announcing the appointment of the Tiongson couple, Fr. Luke, together with the PPC Core, witnessed the turnover of responsibilities from the outgoing PPC Coordinator, Kuya Toti Mangubat, to the new Chaircouple.
In their first message to the council as its new head, Kuya Cesar and Ate Mayette laid out their personal thoughts on their new role, especially on their apprehensions about the work at hand and on their being neophytes in pastoral supervision. They however pledged that with their acceptance of the position, they will be committed to give their best for the glory of God and for a better SLRP.
On his part, Kuya Toti related his challenges in leading the PPC the past two years, the role of the PPC head in running the affairs of the parish as well as in liaising with the vicariate and diocesan lay councils. He wished the best for Kuya Cesar and Ate Mayette as they take on their new role in the parish leadership.
Father Luke then gave his thoughts on the road ahead for the PPC and himself particularly in challenging the parish leadership to make it its mission of providing a better environment for succeeding parish leaders.
Kuya Cesar is the current head of the Extra-ordinary Ministers of Holy Communion while Ate Mayette is a member of the Mother Butler Guild. Both are also active in the Parish Renewal Experience program of the SLRP.
A few days after, in its first meeting of the new PPC, Father Luke also announced that Ate Josie Cruz and Kuya Peter Tamayo have accepted the posts of Asst PPC Coordinator and PPC Auditor, resepctively.
