Fiesta at the St. Catherine of Siena Parish - Villanueva

"Jesus must be for us, as he had been to the disciples at the road to Emmaus - a 'kabayan', 'kaanak' and 'kasalo'. We must continuously encounter Him, who shared everything we experienced [except sin]. He is ever ready to walk with us through life." These words summarize the homily of Most Rev. Socrates Villegas, DD, the Archbishop of Lingayen-Dagupan, who presided over the concelebrated Holy Mass at the St. Catherine of Siena Parish in Villanueva, Bautista, Pangasinan on April 30, 2017. In the same liturgy, which was graced by the presence of Fr. Herman Abcede, the Provincial Superior and his Provincial Vicar, Fr. John Joffer Lucas, the good Prelate already introduced Fr. Joseph Arcaño as the incoming Pastor to the faithful of the Parish, represented mainly during this occasion by the poorest members from its smaller chapels. May St. Catherine intercede for this humble Church, that it may feel the presence of Jesus with them, through the presence and services of their priests!
