In a simple liturgical Rite of Mission Send Off, incorporated in the celebration of the Holy Eucharist, Fr. Ronaldo Victoria, Fr. RG Cagbabanua and Bro. Francis Ferruci Cayao were conferred their missionary cross, with the exhortation from Fr. Herman Abcede, the Provincial Superior, in his homily, to live by the message of the biblical episode where Jesus told Peter to "Put out into deep water..." Fr. Victoria is set to leave for Messina, Sicily, Italy, where he will spend his sabbatical period. Fr. Cagbabanua and Bro. Cayao, on the other hand, will be serving as missionaries in Tarragona, Spain. In the presence of confreres, friends and benefactors, the rite ended with a resounding prayer that the missionaries be made God's messengers of His gospel and witnesses to the divine love before all the world.
