Bishop Tobias Officiates Novena Mass

By Ate Lina Feliciano

SLRP MBG Coordinator

As part of the 22nd Feast Day Celebration of our Patron Saint, SAN LORENZO RUIZ, a nine-day Novena mass was held in commemoration of his sufferings and martyrdom together with his companions. The 10:00 am Novena Mass started last July 25 and every Sunday thereafter with different ministries, sub-divisions and/or areas assigned as sponsors.

Last September 19, the ninth and final Novena Mass was sponsored by the MOTHER BUTLER GUILD together with some members of the Barangay Council of Culiat. It was officiated by Most Rev. Bishop Antonio Tobias and Rev. Fr. Luke Dobles as co-celebrant.

After the mass, the MBG members had lunch with the good Bishop and Fr. Luke at the Union Village residence of Kuya Tony and Ate Lina Feliciano. The lunch was the through the joint efforts of the host family and some officers of the MBG. Light and lively conversation centered on the coming barangay elections and the importance of the having a unified Catholic vote, though not necessarily through block voting, nor direct endorsement of any particular candidate. They also discussed the value of family relationships, especially the children. The Bishop expressed his desire to see them and had pictures taken with them and the host family.

The MOTHER BUTLER GUILD’s Officers and members together with PPC Coordinators Kuya Cesar and Ate Mayette Tiongson had souvenir photos taken with Bishop Tobias and Fr. Luke.
