Bishop’s secretary Fr. Ehchoi Parcon, 45

After completing 45 years of service and 15 years in the priesthood, with deep grief and sorrow, we miss the “live wire” of the Diocese in REV. FR. MELCHOR O. PARCON who, after battling with cancer, died August 23, 2018 at 6:55 p.m.

Let us continue to pray for the eternal repose of the soul of FR. MELCHOR and for the strength of his grieving family.

this news is also very sad for the Diocese after we just lost the late Fr. Burton Villarmente almost a month ago last July 27. For the protection of our priests we pray, “Holy Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle.

Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do you, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who wander through the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.”
