Happy Feast Day!

Welcome Fr. General

Welcome, Fr. General!  August 26, 2018 was a special day for the Provincialate and Paco communities.  We were blessed with presence of Fr. Carlo Bittante, FdCC, the newly elected Fr. General of the Canossian Sons of Charity. The Mass was presided by Bishop Valentin Dimoc of the Apostolic Vicariate of Bontoc-Lagawe and the Fr. Carlo was the homilist.  This was our despedida for him before returning to Italy on the 28th. We shared a joy-filled breakfast after Mass.   During his first visit to the Philippines after his election, he facilitated last August 4,  the blessing of the altar and consecration of new San Pablo Apostol Parish church  in Tondo Manila, where he was the Parish Priest for more than six years.  Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle presided over the Mass and blessing.  He also attended the ordination of Canossian priests - Fr. Brian Bahian, FdCC and Fr. Julius Tumayao, FdCC in Valencia, Bukidnon last  August 11 and Fr. Ralph Jayson Santos in Tondo on August 18. Buon viaggio, Padre Carlo.  Buon apostolato nel mondo Canossiano.
