RE:     PASTORAL LETTER OF HIS EXCELLENCY, MOST REV. JESSE E. MERCADO, D.D. FOR THE FORMAL LAUNCHING OF 2020: YEAR OF ECUMENISM IN THE DIOCESE OF PARAÑAQUE

 

Reverend Monsignori and Fathers:

It is my pleasure to forward to you a copy of the Pastoral Letter of His Excellency, Most Rev. Jesse E. Mercado, D.D. in time for the celebration of our Diocesan Day on 7 December 2019 and to formally commence a new liturgical year in our diocese with the theme: “Diocese in Mission: Ecumenism as a Path Towards Christian Unity”.

Our dear Bishop requests your Reverences that in all Masses on 1 December 2019, the 1st Sunday of Advent, the Pastoral Letter be read instead of your regular homily.

Please find the attached Pastoral Letter in full text, both in English and Tagalog versions.

Thank you so much and may God continue to bless us always.

 

 

Sincerely Yours,

Attested by:

(sgd.) REV. FR. CARMELO O. ESTORES

Chancellor
