Photos: Philippine diocese marks Diamond Jubilee

"We have responded to the signs of the times, and we received a lot of blessings, so let us give thanks for all these years”

The Diocese of Borongan opened its year-long celebration of its Diamond Jubilee on Friday, Oct. 22, 2021, with a Eucharistic celebration presided over by Bishop Crispin Varquez at Borongan Cathedral.

“We have responded to the signs of the times, and we received a lot of blessings, so let us give thanks for all these years,” said the prelate in his homily.

On Oct. 22, 1960, Pope John XIII issued the apostolic bull, “Quod sacri,” creating the Diocese of Borongan. The first bishop of the diocese was Bishop Vicente Reyes who was installed on April 11, 1961. (Photos by Alren Beronio)
