Vice Governor Jose Ferdinand Z. Calimlim, Jr. urges Pangasinenses, young and old alike, to meditate during the sacred time of lent as he joins the 1st Provincial Lenten Recollection and Marketplace Evangelization Program held at the Narciso Ramos Sports and Civic Center (NRSCC) Gymnasium on March 14.

 

LINGAYEN, Pangasinan – “We are truly blessed in Pangasinan… we are truly blessed in the Philippines because we have faith and because we believe in God.”

This was conveyed by Vice Governor Jose Ferdinand Z. Calimlim, Jr. as he welcomed the participants to the 1st Provincial Lenten Recollection and Marketplace Evangelization Program held at the Narciso Ramos Sports and Civic Center (NRSCC) Gymnasium on March 14.

Vice Gov. Calimlim repeatedly extolled the organizers for coming up with an initiative that will bind people together, young and old alike especially during this sacred time of lent.

“For as long as our faith is alive, we will have peace, order and hope,” Vice Gov. Calimlim added as he vowed support of the provincial government to Christian visions like the evangelization program.

The holy mass was earlier officiated by Rev. Fr. Eduardo Guarin.

In his homily, he urged the participants, especially the youth, to manifest love and value life always.

“Nothing is more beautiful than health. Freedom is the most precious thing and life is priceless,” Fr. Guarin said

“Sana ay manitili tayong tapat hindi lang sa Diyos, hindi lang sa bawat isa bagkos maging tapat din tayo sa ating mga sarili,” he added.

The lenten recollection, administered by the Brotherhood of Christian Businessmen and Professionals (BCBP) – Dagupan Chapter headed by Atty. Alvin Gonzales, was parallel to the vision, ‘to bring Christ to the marketplace and win the marketplace for Christ.’

During the recollection, several lectures were conducted aimed at enjoining the participants in spiritual life and encouraging transformational change in others.
