The PADAYON concert or Pag-ibig, Damayan sa Pag-ahon will be held on March 25, 2022, via online.
The concert which is intended to raise funds for the repair of churches destroyed by super typhoon Odette is organized by Caritas Manila and Viva Live Inc.
Fr. Denish Ilogon, Social Action Director of the Diocese of Surigao is hoping for the success of the concert and is very thankful that the churches in Surigao are among the beneficiaries of the concert. He admitted that they do not have the capacity to rebuild the churches destroyed by typhoon Odette.
“Malaking bagay po ito kaya ako ay nagdadasal talaga at nagnanais na yun iba ay mabuksan din ang kanilang puso na although marami naman talaga ang matulungin at nagbabahagi ng kanilang mga biyayang natatanggap ako ay dumadalangin din na maraming mga tao ang bukas ang kanilang puso para tumulong” Fr. Ilogon told Radio Veritas.
Earlier, Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma expressed his gratitude for the initiative of Caritas Manila and Viva Live Inc. The clergy from the Visayas region, particularly the Diocese of Southern Leyte and Negros Occidental were also thankful for the assistance they will give to victims.
Pop Star Sarah Geronimo and other artists from Viva Incorporated will perform on the said concert. Tickets are available from 1,000 to 5,000 pesos. The proceeds of the concert will be used for the construction of the churches in the dioceses affected by typhoon Odette last December 2021. (Jheng Prado/RCM-AOC)
