Reverend Monsignori and Fathers:

Peace and joy in the Lord!

Our dear Bishop, Most Reverend Jesse E. Mercado, D.D., for pastoral consideration and after proper evaluation in accordance with Canon 1118, CIC and Diocesan Statutes, hereby grants the Canonical Privilege to celebrate the Sacrament of Matrimony at the San Ezekiel Moreno Oratory, located in Villar SIPAG Center, Pulang Lupa Uno, Las Piñas City, which is under the ecclesiastical jurisdiction of St. Joseph Parish (Bamboo Organ Church) in Padre Diego Cera Ave., Las Piñas City.

The same special Decree of canonical privilege has also been granted to the Notre Dame de Vie Chapel, located at Palazzo Verde, Daang Reyna, Almanza Dos, Las Piñas City on August 14, 2016, following the dedication of its Mother Parish, the Madonna del Divino Amore Quasi Parish on its new address in Ayala Southvale Drive, Almanza Uno, Las Piñas City.

Therefore, as the Decree clearly states, all preparations: civil and canonical requirements related to the Sacrament of Marriage at these areas should still be handled and directed by the Parish where they respectively belong. (Please see attached Decrees).

For your information and guidance.

Thank you.

Sincerely yours,

REV. FR. CARMELO O. ESTORES
Chancellor
