With the onset of the rainy season and in response to the rising incidence of theft in the parish, especially of things stored in the bodega behind the church, the PPC has taken upon itself to rehabilitate the bodega.
Its dilapidated state has also resulted in a number of things getting damaged from the elements. As Father Luke emphasized in his catechism on stewardship, it is the parish leaders who must take responsibility over the care and protection of these communal property.
Thus toward the end of June, the PPC started a fund-raising campaign and with the generous contributions of well-meaning and benevolent parishioners, the project has gotten underway.
As of the last week of July 2011, total donations amounted to P99,964 while total expenses totalled P44,546 and outstanding payables totalled P47,756.00 for a net cash position of P7,662.00. In the forthcoming issues, we shall a running tally of the funds coming in vis-à-vis the expenses until the ongoing project is completed.
