Pasig Chancellor announces New Parish assignmentsBY FR. MARIANO BARANDA, CHANCELLOR
For the first time in the the Diocese of Pasig, a general reshuffle of priests will be held in February 2015. In the past, there have been movements or changes in assignments involving certain parishes where the need was immediate. The general reshuffle is aimed at providing the parish and the parishioners an opportunity to work together under a new leadership.
In preparation for the general reshuffle, the bishop created a personnel board with the task of studying and preparing the new assignments of priests. It was through a careful evaluation and assessment of the priest’s charisma and strength to complement the parish needs as shown in the survey results, that the board made its recommendations to the bishop for his perusal and approval. However it is the bishop who made the final decision on the assignments.
We thank you dear parishioners for supporting and taking care of your parish priests for the past years. We ask that they be welcomed with joy to their new assignments even as we pray for a more fruitful ministry.
By order of His Excellency Most Rev. Mylo Hubert C. Vergara D.D. bishop of Pasig, I now announce to you the new assignments effective February 1, 2015.
