Cagayan De Oro Now A Zone


Cagayan de Oro-Iligan Community has recently been granted by the National Board a status of a Zone, and now for the first time in Cagayan de Oro and probably also first Mindanaoan, our community produces a full pledge admin couple who is really from Cagayan de Oro.  Ed & Nitz Dangazo experienced their rookie as admin (new mentality) last weekend in May 16-18, 2003 at Covadonga Formation Center in Aloba, Macasandig, Cagayan de Oro City. Thanks to Sal & Cel Bolongan, Cebu Admin Couple for sharing their time in work-shopping Ed & Nitz new mentality talks.  And of course, to our Admin couple Vic & Nenet Ladiona now in Cagayan de Oro for their inspiration and shepherding of Ed & Nitz.  And also Thanks to Cebu Community with the Leadership of Tots & Mayet for inviting Ed & Nitz together with Vic & Nenet in welcoming them last June 29, 2003 in Mabolo Parish in Cebu as new additional Admin and for writing the new admin mentality talks respectively. The joint simple occasion and Team meeting was highlighted by the inspiring enrichment facilitated by Sal & Cel Bolongan.  The said occasion was inspired with the presence of Msgr. Romel of Mabolo Parish.  Ed & Nitz also expresses their heartfelt thanks to Paul & Medy Jiao who hosted them a breakfast with matching inputs and a ride to the venue and Romy & Tessie Lim for snacks in Cebu SM mall with a free ride to Cebu Pier. 


Although we feel sad for the transfer of our Team Priest Fr. Ed Aguero in Manila, who is now in Vatican for further studies, God is so merciful of how we feel as a community, thus He gave us Fr. Rino a replacement of Fr. Ed, who is also a Team Priest in Argentina.  We feel happy because Fr. Rino is supportive with WME, in fact he officiated the mass during our Choice Weekend held in Listonnac Youth Formation Center in Tibasak, Cagayan de Oro City last May 9-11, 2003.


We feel sad by the sudden transfer to Bacolod of Boy & Nina Bering-Iligan Coordinating Couple.  Boy & Nina has done greatly in shepherding the Iligan Couples.  As we have said, God is so merciful.  Again He gave us Gomer & Leclec Hamak, the New Coordinating Couple of Iligan who has been discerned by Iligan couples last June 22, 2003 and facilitated by Vic & Nenet Ladiona with the full support of Ed & Nitz Dangazo and Gerry & Ludie Abadies.  Congratulations to Gomer & Leclec!!!
