24th Regional Biblical Workshop of Northern Luzon

“THAT ALL MAYBE ONE”

In the name of the clergy and laity of the Diocese of Urdaneta and in behalf of our diocesan office of the Biblical Apostolate, I with delight and joy wish to warmly welcome you, our beloved regional chairman of the Episcopal Commission on Biblical Apostolate, the Most Rev. Renato P. Mayugba, DD, the John Paul I Biblical Center Officer in Charge Rev. Fr. Efren Ambre and his staff, the Rev. Fathers and Religious Men and Women, our biblical ministers, the delegates and participants of the 24th Regional Biblical Workshop. I apologize for my absence during this very important event in our biblical ministry.

“UT UNUM SINT” (That they maybe one!) This is a prayer Jesus addressed to the Father that the disciples may be one modeled after the union and intimacy of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This gathering humbly realizes this prayer of Jesus. As we come together, Jesus also prays and wishes that we may be one, that is, one in mind, heart and soul; one in the vision and mission of the apostolate; one in our goal and one in the action to spread God’s Word; one in our love and care for one another.

In the name of the Word who united and continues to unite us, our sincerest gratitude goes to the organizers and participants of this workshop! Our deepest thanks extends to all our priests, sisters, religious, our lay brothers and sisters who contributed their wealth, time and talents to make this workshop a real coming together! God bless you all!

Most Rev. Jacinto A. Jose, DD

Bishop of Urdaneta
