DOP CURCULAR NO. 2019-028

19 March  2019

TO: ALL PARISH PRIESTS, CHAPLAINS, RECTORS OF SHRINES, COORDINATORS OF THE PARISH BIBLICAL APOSTOLATE
RE: GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF BIBLICAL APOSTOLATE COORDINATORS

 

Dear Fathers, Monsignori, Brothers and Sisters:

Greetings of Peace!

First, the Diocese of Parañaque Biblical Apostolate would like to share one of the fruits of our Planning and General Assembly held last November 30 and December 1, 2018, the Vision and Mission of our diocesan ministry:

VISION

We envision ourselves as a loving people of God rooted in the Word, moved by the Holy Spirit towards a new evangelization.

 

MISSION

We commit to make the word of God alive in the Diocese through/by:

  • animation of all pastoral work in every parish
  • early engagement and animation of children and the youth
  • providing parishes access to an updated pool of resources
  • enhancing catechetical work through greater integration of Scripture formation and other programs to ensure continuity of the apostolate

We hope this guides the biblical apostolates in your parish as they pursue the work of animating ministries in the Church through the Word of God.

Second, to continue with its effort to form and train the very bible apostolate coordinators of each parish, the Diocese of Parañaque Biblical Apostolate (DOPBA) will hold a Bible Overview Seminar, on March 30 and 31 at the Our Lady of Fatima Parish, Parish Hall (Las Piñas).

In line with this, we request all parish coordinators (2 per parish) to be present at the said event. Please bring with you a bible, notebook, pen, and tumblers. Kindly confirm your attendance not later than March 22, 2019 by texting the undersigned at 09976085329 or email at edgar.miranda@gmail.com.

Finally, for parishes who still do not have designated Biblical Apostolate Coordinators (two at most) or have not yet advised the DOPBA that you already have Parish BA Coordinators, kindly forward their names/appointment letters to the undersigned at edgar.miranda@gmail.com.

 

Thank you!
