On September 5, the new Archbishop of Lipa (Philippines), Arch.
Ramon Argueles, received a delegation of Youth for the Third
|San Andres, one of the villages the missionaries will be visiting.|
Ramon Austria, President of YTM in Ateneo de Manila
University, explained the work we have been done in the
Archdiocese of Lipa since 2002. We had four missions, two
during school break and two during Holy Week, attending the
most remote villages in Batangas, bringing the Gospel to more
than 1,000 families.
Archbishop Argueles was particularly interested in our missionary
work in the Islands with difficult accessibility. His Excellency was
pleased to know that we went to Isla Verde and
Maricaban Island respectively in 2002 and 2003. Imparting his benediction
to our missionary work, he encouraged us to persevere with
the evangelization missions so Christ can reign in the heart
of the Batangas people.
