In a short visit, Fr. Herman Abcede, the Provincial Superior of the St. Matthew Province, prioritized meeting the religious community to hear the report of the Superior on the status of the House and listened to each confrere in a series of fraternal dialogue. From January 13-14, 2018, Fr. Abcede, with Bro. Nilo Pelobello, the Provincial Treasurer, did their Canonical Visit to the St. Lawrence the Deacon Parish in Bangui, Ilocos Norte, under which the Chapel in Dumalneg belongs, the prime entity Most Rev. Renato Mayugba, the Bishop of Laoag entrusted to the Rogationists. He also had the opportunity to encounter the lay leaders of the Parish. Bro. Christian Allan De Sagun, the Provincial Secretary, who accompanied the Fr. Abcede to document the official visitation, also took the chance to check on the Archives of the Religious House, while Bro. Pelobello checked on its finances and records. May these moments of prayer and colloquy truly strengthen communion among brothers, particularly in this period when the Philippine Church celebrates the Year of the Clergy and Consecrated Persons. St. Lawrence, the Deacon, intercede for us all!
