Archdiocese of Manila to hold Bloodletting

Responding to the call of Bishop Broderick S. Pabillo, Apostolic Administrator of Manila for charity and generosity in his recent Pastoral Instruction titled “Your Servant is Listening”, the Human Resource Development Department of the Archdiocese of Manila will hold a Bloodletting drive.

In a letter released to all parishes and institutions under the Archdiocese of Manila by Fr. Sanny de Claro, Director of RCAM-HRDD, the bloodletting drive will also serve as a welcome gift to Cardinal Jose F. Advincula, Archbishop-elect of Manila.

“May we request you and your relatives and friends to donate blood on June 15 to 18, and June 21 to 23, 2021, 9 AM to 3 PM to the Philippine Red Cross as a ‘Welcome Gift’ to His Eminence Jose F. Cardinal Advincula who will be installed as the 33rd Archbishop of Manila on June 24, 2021. This bloodletting activity is for the benefit of our needy brethren,” Fr. De Claro said in the letter.

Fr. De Claro also reminded those who have been vaccinated to consider the 28-day interval before they could donate blood.

“Please take note that for those you have been vaccinated – the first or second dose of Covid 19 vaccine, you have to wait 28 days before you could donate blood,” Fr. De Claro said.

In the previous years, the Archdiocese of Manila conducts a bloodletting activity as a birthday gift to the former Archbishop of Manila who is now the Prefect of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Evangelizations of People in Rome, His Eminence Luis Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle.

For inquiries or pledges for blood donation, please call any of the following numbers 8-527-3956 (landline no.) and 0926-9266633 (mobile no.) and look for Joel Madronio.
