Holy Cross Parish (HCP) launches Bible Week last January 18 with the theme: “Pulong sa Diyos: Gabayan sa Pagkinabuhi sa Yanong Magtotoo.” This theme highlights the importance of the Bible in guiding the life of the laity in the 74 Gagmay Kristohanong Katilingban (GKK) or small Christian communities.
The program started at 8 :00 AM with a procession of the Word of God around the main road of HCP followed by the Bible Enthronement led by Bro. Fausto Tan Jr, the former HCP Lay Cooperator (LayCo) president. At 9:30 AM, Fr. Rogie V. Castellano, CP, HCP parish priest gave an inspiring introductory input on The Year of the Laity. The celebration ended with a Holy Eucharist where Parish/GKK leaders and ministry workers of almost 2,000 in attendance were inducted, commissioned and blessed.
The Bible Week ends on January 25. The enthroned Bible at HCP will then be brought throughout the year, to each GKK at certain period of time.
