Mission Send Off to Rome, Italy of Bro. Eduardo De Palma

On the celebration of the 24th Sunday of the Ordinary time, in a simple yet meaningful way, Bro. Eduardo de Palma, RCJ received his missionary cross from the hands of Fr. Orville Cajigal, RCJ, the Provincial Superior of the St. Matthew Province. The cross was conferred during the sending off rite which took place during the Eucharistic Celebration presided by Fr. Cajigal in the presence of the Confreres and the interns at the St. Anthony’s Chapel of the St. Anthony's Boys Village-Cavite, on September 12, 2021.

Bro. Eduardo or “Bro. Ed” as fondly called, is joining the community of the General Curia in Rome. Before this assignment, he had been at the Rogationist College as the Head Librarian and Collaborator at the SABV Silang. He had discharged this duty for more than 27 years. The preceding days that culminated with the Despedida Lunch of the community on September 12, 2021 had been moments of expression of gratitude by the school and the different groups that had been touched and recipients of the ministry rendered by Bro. Ed. In his speech, he thanked everybody for the wonderful accompaniment and the journey shared together.
