Diamond Jubilee

I went to the early dawn mass this morning, the second day of the misa de gallo to usher in the Christmas season.

The mass was led by no less than the Archbishop of Davao, Monsignor Fernando Capalla to kick off the year-long celebration to mark the Diamond Jubilee of the of the Archdiocese of Davao next year.

Five city councilors were present during the eucharistic celebration, namely, Bel Reta, Tess Mata-Maranon, Dado Mahipus, Conde Baluran and myself.

The archdiocese was founded on December 17, 1949. The 60th year celebration of the archdiocese has for its theme “Remembering the past with gratitude” “Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever” (Heb. 13:8).
