Novaliches Prelate Leads Clergy in HUB
The Most Rev. Antonio Tobias, D.D., Bishop of Novaliches led the diocesan clergy in participating in the historic Handwritten Unity Bible (HUB) last October 9, 2014.
According to Partnership and Fundraising Supervisor Pearl Grace Cabrera, Bishop Tobias and around 30 other priests from the diocese, including Biblical Apostolate Director Fr. Hernan Batomalaque, became modern-day scribes during the 30-minute HUB writing session.
“It was truly a blessing because aside from the writing session, we also got invited to bring the HUB to other parishes in the diocese. Fr. Hernan also asked us to hold a writing session with diocesan lay leaders during their meeting on October 11. We were also invited to the 2nd Diocesan Bible Congress on October 25 to promote the HUB and the Roving Bible Museum (RBM),” Cabrera shared.
She furthered that apart from the having 34 lay leaders participate in the October 11 writing session, they were also blessed to have been able to have a Bible display, promote the RBM, and engage the lay leaders in fellowship.
“This resulted in bringing the HUB in the School of St. Anthony of Novaliches, Holy Spirit School, Mater Carmeli School, and the Roman Catholic Bishops of Novaliches-Education System (RCBN-ES),” Cabrera reported.
Meanwhile, 200 copies of the New Testament were distributed during the 2nd anniversary celebration of the Sto. Niño de Congresso Parish’s Prayer Ministry last October 12. Aside from proclaiming God’s Word and how it changed their lives, participants to the celebration also showcased their copies of the May They Be One (MTBO) Bible during the Bible enthronement.
Cabrera said that the next HUB writing event will be in the city of Las Piñas, as part of the 37th Anniversary celebration of the United Church of Christ-Community Church of Las Piñas on October 26, 2014.
