RE: 1ST PHILIPPINE VISIT OF THE OAD PILGRIM RELIC OF SAINT AUGUSTINE IN THE DIOCESE OF PARAÑAQUE
Reverend Monsignori and Fathers,
Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
We are pleased to announce that the Order of the Augustinian Discalced (OAD) has organized the 1st Visit of the OAD Pilgrim Relic of St. Augustine in various dioceses in the Philippines. The said relic, a sizeable and major first class bone relic (ex ossibus) of St. Augustine of Hippo, will arrive and stay in the Diocese of Parañaque on Wednesday, 6 June 2018 from 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., at the St. Andrew Cathedral, La Huerta, Parañaque City.
This will be a wonderful moment of recollection, prayer and spiritual encounter to the very founder of the Augustinian Order, who is also considered as one of the most revered and influential Christian writer of all time – a Bishop and Doctor of the Church. We are inviting priests and lay faithful to support and participate in this event. For further details regarding this scheduled visit to our diocese, you may call the Cathedral Parish Office at 826-1760.
May we be inspired and venerate the good works of St. Augustine of Hippo for the greater Glory of our Lord Jesus!
REV. FR. JOSEPH D. LANDERO
