Dear Monsignori, Fathers,
Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Peace in the Risen Christ!
This is to respectfully forward to you the following recommendations of His Excellency, Most Rev. Jesse E. Mercado, D.D., on the celebration of the Sacraments and Sacramentals in our parish communities in compliance to the government’s announcement of Enhanced Community Quarantine extension due to COVID-19, in which, may also be our usual practice in the succeeding months until further notice and instructions. Please see attachments.
Let us continue to pray together, strengthen one another, and entrust ourselves to the Lord during this challenging time. May God bless us all!
