TO: ALL INCARDINATED PRIESTS and MEMBERS OF THE PARISH TRANSITION TEAM
RE: SEND-OFF RECOLLECTION FOR INCARDINATED PRIESTS AND OTHER REMINDERS ON THEIR TRANSFER TO THE NEW PARISH
Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
In accordance with the final phase of our Clergy General Reshuffling protocol timeline, I would like to request all our incardinated priests to attend the Send-off Recollection, which will also be our Clergy Assembly for this month. This will be held on Thursday, 29 June 2017 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 n.n at the Diocesan Center for Evangelization. This recollection will be given by our dear Bishop, Most Rev. Jesse E. Mercado, D.D. with Msgr. Allen C. Aganon, our Vicar General.
As we well know, the effectivity of our respective new appointment is on July 1, 2017. Therefore, it is requested that each of us should already be in our particular parish assignment by July 3, 2017. The Liturgical rite of acceptance should be done in one of the Sunday masses of July, with the help and full coordination of the parish office and members of the transition team. The liturgical rite of acceptance to be provided by the DCLPR will be released soon.
Thank you very much and may God’s blessings be with us always.
REV. FR. JOSEPH D. LANDERO
