New Calabrian Parish: an overview

​​Jose Abad Santos: The new calabrian community started on last April 3, is serving the Our Lady of the Assumption Parish, in the Diocese of Digos.

Let's know more about:

Our Lady of the Assumption Parish (OLAP) is a community of Basic Ecclesial Communities – BECs - known as GKKs – Gagmayng Kristohanong Katilingban (Cebuano language) -, established as parish of the Diocese of Digos on August 15, 1959, and located in the Municipality of Jose Abad Santos, Province of Davao Occidental, Philippines.

Vision: Christian communities united in the same spirit, fully developed, self-reliant and responsible, that pray, teach and serve in solidarity with the Magisterium—living signs of the presence of the Kingdom of God, and being effective instruments of its spread to other communities.

Mission: For its mission the faithful of OLA Parish commit themselves to help one another:

1) to become persons and communities that love and worship God, listen to His word and are intimately united with Him in the Eucharist;

2) to become informed, formed and transformed communities of persons with deep Christian values, and

3) to live the spirit of love and service for others as free children of God, entering into the evangelical task of effecting total human development.
