According to Fr. Rey Aguanta, current Administrator of the Apostolic Vicariate of Taytay, they are already making the necessary preparations for the installation of Bishop Pabillo considering the present situation brought about by the prevailing COVID-19 pandemic.
Among the preparations they make, said Fr. Aquanta, is they constantly coordinate with the local government of Taytay for the arrival of guests who will join and attend the installation.
“Nagmi-meeting pa rin kami mga pari pero ang baseline po natin sa August 19 ang installation sa St. Joseph Cathedral,” Fr. Aquanta told Radio Veritas.
Bishop Pabillo is scheduled to go to Palawan on the second week of August to prepare for his installation and to meet with his priests there.
In the recent interview of the Archdiocese of Manila Office of Communications, Bishop Pabillo shared that among his priorities when gets to Palawan is to visit and check the real situation of the clergy.
“Ang nilo-look forward ko doon ay yung makita yung mga lugar ng mga pari kasi di ko pa alam saan sila nakatira. Kaya ang idea ko bisitahin muna sila at makita ang kanilang kalagayan, tamang kalagayan nila,” Bishop Pabillo said.
On the other hand, the Apostolic Vicariate ensured strict adherence to health protocols to keep those who will attend the installation safe from the spread of the coronavirus.
