Joy as Second Columban Priest Ordained in the Philippines

We rejoice and give thanks to God for the priestly ordination of Fr Jerry A. Lohera as a Columban missionary priest.

On 14 June 2022, Archbishop Jose Cabantan of Cagayan de Oro ordained Fr Jerry.

The ceremony took place at San Roque Parish, Magsaysay, Misamis Oriental, in the Philippines.

Fr Jerry’s ordination follows the priestly ordination of Fr Elbert Balbastro on 21 May in the Philippines.

May the Good Lord continue to call young people to bring God’s love and compassion to the ends of the Earth.
