Following the concelebrated 10 AM mass last June 2, 2013, Fr. JB Abellana (incoming parish priest), assisted by Fr. Luke Dobles (outgoing parish priest) , blessed the commemorative marker symbolizing the communitarian spirit of the people of San Lorenzo Parish in building the SLRP Formation Center. He prayed that the center will be a venue for spiritual growth and formation among the people of San Lorenzo.
Sister Pilar Perez, SRA, read the inscription to the crowd after the blessing. This was followed by the embedding of the time capsule, also by Frs. Luke and JB. The capsule contains the statues of the Blessed Mother and San Lorenzo Ruiz, the parish's 25th anniversary medallion and the signatures of the SLRP parishioners, the main driving force in making this center a reality.
Lunch and a short program then followed wherein Father Luke introduced the members of the PPC and the heads of the different ministries and organizations. Upon learning that Fr. JB had a good singing voice, the crowd requested a song from him to which he gamely complied. He was joined by Fr. Luke in duet afterwards. The program was further enlivened by songs rendered by the SSDM, the Parish Youth Ministry and by Ate Lulu Visaya of SLRP, and by Ate Pauline of the Parish of Pagkabuhay, Fr. JB's former parish. Lunch was sponsored by the different ministries.
