SUBJECT: COMMISSION’S FLAGSHIP AND GOALS
Dear Fathers, Monsignori, Brothers and Sisters:
Greetings of peace!
Dear Fathers, Brothers and Sisters:
In November of 2017, we sent a copy of the Diocesan Thrust or concept for the Year of the Clergy and Consecrated Persons to the personal email of the parish priests. This is in order for them to be able to use the document as guide and reference for their early annual planning for 2018.
Today the Pastoral Department is sending you and those concerned a copy of the Concept and the Flagship and Goals of Five (5) Commissions namely, Commission on Liturgy and Popular Religiosity (CLPR), Commission on Catechesis and Religious Education (COMCARE), Commission on BEC Animation and New Evangelization (COMBANE), Commission the Family (DCOF) and Commission on the Service to Human Promotion (CARITAS PQUE).
As a practice, the commissions are not prescribing programs for the parishes. As requested, they are to set goals and come up with programs on the Diocesan level. Parishes on the other hand, are encouraged to create or develop programs applicable to them, using the goals set by the Diocesan Commissions as reference or guide.
The department shall send you the copy of the Commission on the Youth’s flagship and goals as soon as the document is made available to the OPD.
May the good Lord, through “Nana Ciso”, continue to guide and bless you in all your endeavors.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
REV. FR. ROLANDO AGUSTIN
REV. FR. CARMELO O. ESTORES
