On behalf of Bishop Roberto Mallari, DD, from the Diocese of San Jose, Nueva Ecija, Philippines, Father Getty Ferrer is conducting the Mission Appeal at St. Matthias this weekend. The Diocese of San Jose is located 160 km. north of Manila, with a population of 789,000. It is mostly an agricultural community with poor tenant-farmers producing rice, corn, onions, fruits and vegetables. Annually typhoons devastate the rice crops of many poor farmers. The Diocese humbly asks for and relies on your generosity in order to support and sustain their pastoral programs and outreach activities.
Thank you for your generous response to our Appeal!
