Foundation officers and staff joined Legacy Forest Project workers, including supervisors and planters in attending the first ever Holy Mass celebrated at the St. Francis Chapel near the project site in Carranglan, Nueva Ecija last December 23, 2015.
Fr. Jerome Ponce from the Divine Mercy Chapel of Sta. Fe, Nueva Vizcaya officiated at the ceremony. Members of the Divine Mercy music ministry came to lead in the singing of the hymns.
The workers felt the Christmas holiday spirit after attending the Mass and partaking of the sumptuous lunch with the guests that followed. They were thankful for the get-together and the different kinds of calendars distributed to them after the activity. Among those who attended the gathering were TYKFI’s Philip Sing, Jonathan Anuma, former DepED Region 1 Regional Director Teresita Velasco, Evelyn Abao and former Sta. Fe Mayor Teodorico Padilla, Jr.
The renovation of the chapel recently started with the replacement of the nipa roof with galvanized sheets. It is being renovated to accommodate Catholic parishioners in the area.
