CITY OF MALOLOS – Some 5,000 Catholic Bulakeños will convene at the Cathedral Church for the celebration of the Jubilee Year of the Diocese of Malolos with its theme “Limampung taon ng biyayang nagpapanibago at pananampalatayang di-magmamaliw” on March 10, Saturday.

To show its support, the Provincial Government of Bulacan is now busy preparing to ensure an orderly, safe arrival of Archbishop Giuseppe Pinto, Apostolic Nuncio to the Philippines, and the stay of more than 50 Bishops and Archbishops from all over the country. The preparation includes assigning of focal persons to assigned holding area of visitors, maintaining the cleanliness and orderliness of the venues to be visited, strict implementation of security measures in every point of entry and exit and dissemination of IEC materials to inform the public about the upcoming event.

Papal Nuncio or the Apostolic Nuncio, is the diplomatic representative of Holy See equivalent to an Ambassador.

Upon arrival, Vice Gov. Daniel Fernando will welcome the Nuncio together with the hundred cultural dance performers and bands going to the Cathedral where Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado awaits for the flag raising ceremony which will be followed by a mass.

“We call the attention of all the Barangay Captains, I call them personally para mahikayat sila na maglinis para sa pagdating ng Nuncio, and we are doing our best para malaman ng lahat, ng mas marami ang kanyang pagdating being the representative of the Pope,” Alvarado said.

After the mass, the Nuncio will depart for Jubilee Homes Subdivision in Plaridel, a housing project of the Diocese followed by a ceremonial tree planting.

“Biyaya ng Diyos ang dahilan kung bakit nananatiling matatag at nagkakaisa ang sambayanan, ngunit bukod dito ay ang pagsalubong ng mga tao ng kanilang pananampalataya. Ang relasyon ng Diyos sa tao, at ang relasyon ng tao sa kapwa tao ang nagpapanatiling matatag sa ating pananampalataya, at ito ay isang pambihirang pagkakataon para mapalalim natin ang ating pananampalataya sa Diyos,” said Fr. RJ Brion, chaplain of the Capitol in Bulacan.

“Ako ay sasama sa Nuncio sa buong pananatili niya sa lalawigan, because it’s a blessing na makasama ang Nuncio, ” added Alvarado.

PGB also prepared tokens of appreciation and food for all the visitors and participants.

According to records, the jubilee year is celebrated every 25 years, 50 years, and 75 years upon the approval of Pope Clement VI so that more people during their time can celebrate the said event.

Activities that are part of the celebration are the Canonical Coronation in appreciation of the deep devotion to the Immaculate Conception and the launching of the second “sinodo” of Malolos. There are also assigned peregrination churches to deepen the faith of the whole Diocese. ###
