Dear Friends in Christ:
The Third National Assembly of Filipino Priests in the USA will be held on November 7-10, 2017 at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in Houston, Texas. This event provides a venue for more or less eight hundred (800) priests of Filipino heritage serving the Church in the United States to come together again for another wonderful experience of fraternity and fellowship to promote unity and solidarity, to offer a rich program and various activities for spiritual enrichment and on-going pastoral formation as well as opportunities for witnessing, sharing and renewing priestly vocation so we become more effective ministers of evangelization.
I, together with the Filipino Priests and the Filipino Ministry Council of The Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, invite you to be a part of this worthwhile endeavor. On behalf of my brother Filipino priests, I solicit your generous support to sponsor their participation and help us defray the expenses of this assembly. Your prayers and financial contributions are indicative of your appreciation and gratitude to our Filipino priests.
To commemorate this grand assembly and as a memento for this occasion, a Souvenir Program will be published. We would like to solicit your help and prayerfully consider becoming a sponsor by placing an ad in the Souvenir Program. Please refer to the attached Souvenir Program Solicitation Form.
Grateful for your support of our Filipino priests and with prayerful wishes of God’s blessings, I remain.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Reverend Edmund P. Eduarte Reverend Dale Almenario
Pastor, St. Joseph Catholic Church Deacon, St. Helen Catholic Church
Vicar for Filipino Catholics, Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston
