THE DIOCESE: RETROSPECTION – INTROSPECTION
(PAGE 4)


THE ALTAR OF THE CATHEDRAL OF OUR LADY OF THE MOST HOLY
ROSARY IN DIPOLOG CITY, PHILIPPINES DESIGNED BY DR. JOSE RIZAL

 

Finally, the church in Dipolog has to take care of her priests who, as leader servants of Christian communities, face more challenges. Their formation does not end at ordination. Otherwise, if one gets sick at the head, the rest of the body cannot function well. The diocese has to come up and implement a comprehensive program designed to provide an on-going formation of the clergy. Setting up an” ordination to expiration” clergy foundation is necessary in this pursuit.

Integral development through community empowerment, national reconciliation, dialogue and communion of faith, ecological concerns—these are a few of the challenges which assure an exciting ecclesial life to the diocese of Dipolog.

Today, the church in Dipolog looks back to her past with gratitude and jubilee. Looking forward, she welcomes her future undaunted, even tasking herself with the mission “Hiusahonan tanan diha ni Kristo aron mabatonan ang kinabuhi madagayaon”.

July 31, 2017…. With our patroness, Our Lady of the Rosary, we invite you, “Come! Today we go beyond our 25th year. Let us begin realizing and celebrating our golden jubilee!”
